Right to Buy

The Right to Buy scheme allows council and housing association tenants who have lived in their home for a certain amount of time to buy it.

On 24th September 2015 the government announced they would consider a voluntary offer from housing associations rather than enforce this change through legislation. The National Housing Federation has asked it's members to choose whether to support or not support this offer.

We have chosen to support the voluntary offer subject to a number of qualifications.
