Are you one of our council housing tenants? Or maybe you’re with a housing association?

You might already know this, but the Right to Buy will end in Wales on Saturday, January 26.

It follows on from a decision made by the Welsh Government back in 2017.


If you’ve been considering buying your council home, you’ll need to submit an application to your landlord – either us or your housing association, depending on your circumstances – by no later than January 25 (any applications received after this date won’t be accepted).

Further information is available from the Welsh Government here, spelling out whether or not you’re eligible to buy your home and other details.

If you’ve already made an application, don’t worry about the deadline. We’ll still be processing applications we’ve already received in the normal way, and the deadline won’t affect them.

“The clock is ticking – don’t miss out”

Cllr Mark Pritchard, Leader of the Council, said: “As the Right to Buy comes to an end, we know there may be people out there who might not know the deadline is approaching, and might be interested in buying their council house.

“If so, they need to make representations before January 25 – either to us, or their housing association, depending on who their landlord is.

“This is the last opportunity people will have to buy their council home, and the clock is ticking. If they’re interested, they shouldn’t miss out.”
