Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.

It is a standard condition of all Council Tenancies that you do NOT own another property.

You can check your tenancy agreement for any exceptions - but it is unlikely that a Buy to Let purchase would be allowed

Please ask if you need further details
