LHP are taking part in a secondary pilot of the government’s Voluntary Right to Buy (VRTB) scheme this summer.
This means that tenanted properties located in the south of the county may be eligible to take part in the scheme.
The Voluntary Right to Buy is a scheme agreed between the government and the National Housing Federation to give housing association tenants the chance to buy their homes at the same discount level as council tenants have under the Right to Buy.
We, along with nearly 50 housing associations in the Midlands, are taking part in a major pilot to test some technical aspects of the scheme that will address issues that housing associations face but councils do not.
We have out together some useful questions and answers below to help guide you through the process but in the meantime here are some do’s and don’ts to help you make a successful application.
