Buy a home

Voluntary Right to Buy

The voluntary Right to Buy scheme gives some Housing Association tenants the legal right to buy their home. Under the voluntary Right to Buy scheme, you can buy your home at a price lower than the full market value. This is because the length of time you have spent as a tenant entitles you to a discount.

Even though this scheme has not yet come into effect, Inquilab have volunteered to partake in this initiative. It is currently only being piloted by a small number of Housing Associations who will be setting out the guidelines and framework for Inquilab to implement when it is fully extended out to all Housing Associations.

The Housing Associations taking part in the pilot are:

  • L&Q

  • Riverside

  • Saffron

  • Sovereign

  • Thames Valley

To register your interest in the Right to Buy scheme please fill out the Right to Acquire / Right to Buy enquiry form, which you can download from our online portal. Once this scheme is extended to Inquilab, we will update our website with further details.

As this scheme is currently being piloted there may be changes which will also be posted on our website.

The booklet in the link above describes the Right to Buy scheme as it works today, considering the changes made to the Right to Buy legislation which came into effect in April 2012 and July 2014. The information in it applies only to England. We have tried to make it easy to understand – but it is not a substitute for professional advice.
