The Government's Voluntary Right to Buy Midlands pilot is now live - and we're part of it
You may have heard about the initial pilot involving five housing associations that took place in 2016. The new pilot in the Midlands is testing out other aspects of the scheme. This means that some assured tenants of housing associations living in general needs properties in the Midlands may be able to buy their home from their housing provider. The pilot is operated on a voluntary basis by housing associations and underpinned by a national agreement between the National Housing Federation and Government.
