The Government recently announced a new pilot for the Voluntary Right to Buy Scheme for tenants of Housing Associations.

There will be a regional pilot of the new scheme which will be restricted to the East and West Midlands

We expect to receive more details from Government and the National Housing Federation in the Spring of 2018 after which Places for People will work to identify which properties may be included and excluded from the Voluntary RTB pilot.

Examples of properties which may be excluded may include those properties which we are obliged to keep as rented properties, or properties which are particularly suitable for elderly persons.

There is no further information available at this stage as to if and when the scheme might be rolled out nationally.

As soon as we have more information available, we'll provide instructions on how you can register your interest.
