An update for the Voluntary Right to Buy has been announced by the Ministry of Housing Communities. It’s been reported that the government are thinking of a second ballot of the Right To Buy following an unexpectedly low turnout of the first ballot. However the level of tenants who were awarded an unique reference number (URN) which was 6000 didn’t contact their Housing Associations about purchasing their homes within the required time frame.
Tenants can still retain their discounts to purchase another Housing Association home if the one that there living in is exempt from the sale as a result of a section 106 stipulations or other planning conditions
The government has said it will “assess the impact of the pilot before deciding on the next steps for this policy”, meaning it will not be extended nationwide until at least 2020.
