The Right To Buy and Right To Acquire schemes are being abolished by Welsh Government.

To encourage the development of new housing stock and protect recent investment, the Right to Buy and Right to Acquire has ended for ‘new homes’. A new home is one that has not been let as social housing for the six months before 24 March 2018.

For existing social housing stock, final abolition will take place on 26 January 2019 and any application made after this date will not be accepted.

If you are eligible to exercise Right to Buy, you can submit your application to your landlord up to, and including, 25 January 2019. Any application made after this date will not be accepted. The maximum discount available to anyone who qualifies for Right to Buy or Right to Acquire is £8,000.

A guide is available that explains what you should do if you are thinking about applying to buy your home. The end of the Right to Buy and Right to Acquire will not affect your tenancy in any other way.

The Welsh Government website has lots of information about the abolition and what it could mean to you.
