Answer for Right to Buy

Answer for Right to Buy

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The government now expects boroughs to replace every home sold through Right to Buy, a new policy. So of itself, there should be no impact on the number of council and other affordable homes. Where homes are not replaced, boroughs are required to pass the receipts on to the GLA.
