This collection provides data related to sales of local authority dwellings and some summary information on sales of registered provider stock (previously known as Registered Social Landlords or housing associations). See further details on sales by registered providers
Social housing sales include sales under the Right to Buy, Preserved Right to Buy, Right to Acquire, Social HomeBuy, other outright or shared equity sales to tenants, and sales of existing stock to the private sector.
The figures exclude sales through low cost home ownership schemes where these do not relate to existing social stock, ie sales of newly built homes for shared ownership or acquisitions of private sector homes for affordable home ownership.
Figures on Right to Buy sales also include the number of applications, related selling price and discount information. Notes and definitions are included with the live tables.
DCLG are interested in understanding more about how our housing statistics and data are used and the decisions they inform. This is important for us so we can provide a high quality service which meets users’ needs.
