Can I buy my home from Blackpool Council? - Step 1
You may buy your home if:

  • you are a secure tenant;
  • you have spent a total of at least five years as a tenant of Blackpool Council, another Right to Buy Landlord or similar public body or in accommodation provided by the Armed Forces.
  • your house or flat is a separate home and is your only or main home.  This is 2 years if your secure tenancy began before 18th January 2005.

CAN YOU AFFORD THE RIGHT TO BUY?  -  please go to How to buy your home

You cannot buy your home if:

  • it is sheltered housing;
  • it is particularly suitable for elderly people and was first let before 1st January 1990 to be lived in by someone aged 60 or more;
  • it is being used as temporary housing by Blackpool Council.

You do not need to use an Agent to apply for the Right to Buy your Home.

There are agencies who advertise or call at homes offering to help tenants buy their homes. Please be aware that Blackpool Coastal Housing and Blackpool Council DO NOT have any arrangements with any agents. Such agents will charge for their services.

For more information please ring 01253 477984 during office hours, or send an e-mail.
