Housing associations are working with the Government to deliver its election commitment to extend the Right to Buy to their tenants by way of voluntary agreement instead of legislation.
The Federation and its members are now establishing how Voluntary Right to Buy (VRTB) will work in practice, making sure it delivers for tenants, for housing associations and for the Government.
Read more about:
- the original VRTB agreement and the fundamental principles that it’s based on
- how VRTB is being developed, how housing associations are shaping this work, the role of the Federation, and the pilot schemes
- updates on the policy, including a briefing on the latest thinking about the scheme design.
