The Right to Acquire (RTA) gives qualifying Registered Social Landlord tenants a right to purchase their homes if they were provided using Social Housing Grant or transferred from a local authority.

A discount of 25% of the market value is given, up to a maximum of £16,000. The Right to Acquire only applies to certain types of property and does not apply in designated rural areas.

The booklet below explains how the scheme operates and provides you with some advice on the costs of home ownership.
