Mr James Brokenshire MP, Secretary of State for the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) recently wrote to inform me of the launch of a pilot of the Right to Buy scheme for Housing Association tenants in the Midlands. Please see the attached PDF.
The pilot aims to test how the Right to Buy works for Housing Association tenants, building on a small scale pilot that was run with five Housing Associations in 2016. Tenants who are able to buy through the pilot will benefit from the same level of discount on their property as council tenants receive under the statutory Right to Buy.
The registration will be open to tenants for one month until 16th September 2018.
For more information on eligibility and how the pilot will operate tenants can go to the MHCLG website: https://midlands.righttobuy.gov.uk.
