People ask why I love living in a council house but I’ll own it soon for a knocked down price – it’s a smart way to live | The Sun

A WOMAN who loves living in a council house has told how it's a "smart way to live" because she'll own it for a reduced price in a few years.

Celene, who posts under the TikTok handle @61thecouncilhouse, shared a video showing off the chic interior inside her council home.

Among the items on show include a vase from H&M home, lamp from Ikea and pampas stems from her mum's garden.

In the clip, she explains: "When people ask me why I love living in my council house…because I have the option to buy it after three years with a minimum of 35% discount."

Song lyrics can be heard playing in the background which say: "Smart ways to live."

The discount Celene is referring to is based on the 'Right to Buy scheme' which helps eligible council and housing association tenants in England to buy their home with a discount of up to £87,200 (£116,200 inside London). 

She captioned the post: "Breaking the stigma that comes with living in a council house."

The video has since gone viral, racking up over 245,00 views and several comments from social media users online.
