Housing Acquisitions - Expressions of Interest

Mayo County Council, as part of its provision of social housing, can purchase suitable properties when offered for sale.

Mayo County Council in purchasing properties are subject to Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage guidelines which cover restrictions on housing acquisitions insofar as to avoid undue impact on the private housing market, including avoiding competition with first time buyers or acquisitions by other private individuals or families.

Housing Acquisitions should represent value for money and should be assessed against cost guidelines.

Mayo County Council have introduced an Expression of Interest form where property owners can upload basic detail on their property if they wish to have this property considered for purchase by Mayo County Council. The Expression of interest form is temporarily closed.

If a property owner does not receive an acknowledgement/decision on their expression within 7 working days, please email
