Selling your home

We are buying back former Council properties to house families on our housing waiting list.
Website survey

We want your help with improving our website so it is easier to use, and provides the information that residents need. Help us by filling in this short survey.

We are purchasing former Council properties to house families on our housing waiting list, through our Right to Buyback programme.

With around 10,000 families on our housing waiting list, we are always looking for new ways to increase the supply of social housing in Lewisham. Our Right to Buyback programme aims to help tackle the housing crisis by purchasing former Council properties, using funding from the Mayor of London.

Selling your property to the Council can offer greater security and certainty than selling on the private market and will help provide new homes for those families most in need.

If you own a former Council home and are considering selling your property, you can get in touch with our Buybacks team via buybacks@lewisham.gov.uk or complete our online form and we will be in touch.
