This release presents official statistics on the number of sales of dwellings under the Right to Buy scheme, as well as providing statistics on receipts resulting from those sales and starts on site as part of the one-for-one replacement policy.
The scheme allows eligible social housing tenants to buy their house at a reduced price and has been in place since 1980. These statistics relate only to sales by local authorities under the scheme, excluding sales by private registered providers under preserved Right to Buy.
Figures are collected from local authority returns to the Department for Communities and Local Government.
