Your council tenancy
Giving your tenancy to someone else
If you want to give your tenancy to someone, the house must have been their only or principal home for at least 6 months before you request. We will only withhold permission if we have very good reasons.
People who are given a tenancy qualify for the modernised Right to Buy terms and conditions. This applies even if the tenant who assigns the tenancy has a Right to Buy entitlement based on the pre-2001 Act terms and conditions.
This means that in all Highland communities covered by the pressured area status designation, anyone being assigned a tenancy will have their Right to Buy suspended unless the tenancy is the Caithness communities not covered by the designation.
