Selling your flat

Residents who buy a property through the Right to Buy scheme will not be able to sell their property for 10 years unless they meet the conditions of the Housing Act 1985.

This means that residents must give the landlord the right to buy back the property first. The leaseholder or freeholder selling their property must serve a notice on Brent Council.

The council then has eight weeks to tell the leaseholder or freeholder if they want to buy. We advise all leaseholders and freeholders to get legal advice before selling their home in this period.
