House Purchase Grant

If you are a Wandsworth council tenant with more than two years tenancy, you may be eligible for a grant of up to £80,000 (subject to eligibility criteria) to vacate your council property and to use towards buying your own property.

Please note there are some scheme changes taking place from Monday 1 April 2019.

Due to the high demand for the House Purchase grant, the funds have now been fully allocated for 2019/20. If you are interested in this scheme and wish to be added onto the HPG waiting list if funds become available or if you would like to find out more information, please contact the team at housesales@wandsworth.gov.uk.
