Purchasing a council home has been made easier for pensioners.

According to the Irish Independent, the Tenant Purchase Scheme - which was signed off by Cabinet last year - has been enacted by the Housing Minister.

It allows pensioners with a minimum income of 12 thousand 500 to purchase their council home.

Prior to this, pensioners had to have an annual income of at least 15 thousand euro to buy their home from the local authority.
