Once your landlord has received your completed application, they need to confirm whether you and your property are eligible. They will confirm this by sending you a RTB2 notice.

They have up to 4 weeks to do this, or 8 weeks if you have been with your current landlord for less than 3 years.

See the Right to Buy website for more information.
