Your discount for the right to invest scheme is based on a percentage of your right to buy entitlement.

For example, if your home is worth £200,000 and you want to buy a 25% share (worth £50,000) and you are entitled to the minimum right to buy discount of 35%, this would equate to a discount of £17,500, meaning your initial purchase price would be £32,500.

The amount of discount you are entitled to is set by central government and depends on if you live in a house or a flat and how long you have lived there.
