2016 Incremental Tenant Purchase Scheme
The council facilitates eligible applicants to purchase their local authority rented property through the 2016 Incremental Tenant Purchase Scheme (see documents listed below in the related documents section).
For further information please contact 01 414 9000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Where an applicant under the 2016 Incremental Tenant Purchase Scheme is approved to purchase their dwelling they must finance the purchase by way of a mortgage. Applicants who wish to finance by way of a mortgage can do so through a bank, building society, credit union or South Dublin County Council.
With effect from 1st February 2022 the following changes have been made to the scheme:
The minimum income required for an applicant to be eligible to apply under the scheme is €12,500 p.a.
The change only applies to pensions – other social welfare payments may only be regarded as secondary income.
The period of time tenants will be required to be in receipt of social housing support to be considered eligible under the scheme has been changed from one to 10 years.
In the case of joint tenancies, both tenants must be in receipt of social housing support for at least 10 years before being eligible to apply.
Once you have purchased your home, our Loan Accounts Section then manage your account and assists with any redemption or other queries.
If you want to redeem your loan, please request your redemption figures in writing by completing a Request for Redemption Figures form or contact 01-4149000 or email email@example.com.
