I have the RTB my council house and am preparing to do

Resolved Question:

Hi, I have the RTB my council house and am preparing to do so. Reading the literature I note in the qualifying rules that " must be your only or main home".
I was left property by my parents and rent this out. Does this disqualify me from exercising my RTB.
I have lived in my council house for the past 16 years.
Thanks

No it doesn't disqualify you. Right to buy is based on your own tenancy agreement with the council. Your only or main home has no relevance to property you may own elsewhere
