Right to Buy extension
In June 2022 the government announced potential changes to Right to Buy by considering reviving the Right to Buy scheme so that housing association residents may be able to apply to buy their homes at a discounted price.
This new scheme will be called Voluntary Right to Buy and the details of the scheme are currently being worked out and we do not any further information at this stage. We'll continue to update you here when we understand how this announcement affects our customers.
Preserved Right to Buy
Some tenants in England whose home used to be owned by a local authority, but was transferred to another landlord (e.g. a housing association) whilst they were living in it, may have the Preserved Right to Buy.
In addition, please see information on Right to Buy and Mortgages here
Right to Acquire
Allows housing association tenants in England to buy their home at a discount if the property was bought or built by the housing association after 31 March 1997. Discounts of between £9,000 or £16,000 are available depending on the local authority.
In addition, please see the Disclosure Form, this will need completing alongside the application form.
