Right To Buy Extension Delayed By Brexit Vote

The Right to Buy extension to housing association tenants is set to be delayed due to the EU referendum result, according to the CLG official leading on the scheme. Guidelines for the voluntary Right to Buy programme now have no fixed publication deadline for coming out, as civil servants prioritise dealing with the uncertainty brought about by a new government and the Brexit vote. Officials had hoped to publish guidelines within the next six months. Further details of the government’s position on the subject will come out with the Autumn Statement on 23 November.  Read more on Inside Housing.
