Voluntary Right to Buy (RTB) announced

The Government recently announced a new Voluntary Right to Buy Scheme for tenants of Housing Associations.

What we know

  • The Housing and Planning Bill was given Royal Assent on Friday 13th May 2016.
  • We expect to receive more details from Government and the National Housing Federation in the summer after which PfP will work to identify which properties may be included and excluded from the voluntary RTB scheme.
  • Examples of properties which may be excluded may include those which we are obliged to keep as rented properties, or properties which are particularly suitable for elderly persons.
  • We expect that the scheme will be rolled out nationally from early 2017.

Register your interest

As soon as we have more information on the scheme, we'll provide instructions on how you can register your interest.
