Right to Buy sales up 10% 23/11/2017

Latest figures from DCLG show that local authority Right to Buy sales in 2016-17 were 13,416 - up 10% on the previous year.


Since 2012-13 when the Reinvigorated Right to Buy was introduced there has been an increase in the sale of social housing reflecting the substantially increased discounts offered to tenants.


The average Right to Buy discount per council dwelling sold in 2016-17 was £61,810 - more than double the 2011-12 value of £26,690 which reflects the increased discounts given under the Reinvigorated Right to Buy and the increases in house prices.


In 2016-17 there were a total of 23,186 sales of social housing by local authorities and housing associations - amounting to about 0.6% of the total social rented stock of 4 million.
