The Abolition of the Right to Buy and Associated Rights

The Abolition of the Right to Buy and Associated Rights (Wales) Act 2018 gained Royal Assent on 24 January 2018. This means the Right to Buy and Right to Acquire in Wales will be ending. Tenants will have until 26 January 2019 to apply to Buy or Acquire their homes.

The Welsh Government has published an Information for Tenants document explaining the effect of the legislation: Information about the End of the Right to Buy and Right to Acquire in Wales.

If you have any queries, or would like a copy of the Booklet in Welsh or another language then please do not hesitate to contact Delyth Evans – Land & Legal Advisor: righttobuy@taicalon.org
