Buying your home

Any local estate agent can guide a potential home buyer through the process of finding and financing a new home. All of the local newspapers carry details of properties which are available to buy on a weekly basis.

A fuller explanation of what is involved in buying a home can be found in the booklet, ‘Thinking About Buying’, which is available free from the Scottish Government's website.

Right to buy

The Housing (Scotland) Act 2014  ended the Right to Buy on 1 August 2016. If you live in a Council house or rent from a Registered Social Landlord the Right to Buy your home is no longer available.
