The Right to Acquire Scheme gives some tenants of housing associations the right to buy the homes that they currently rent.
To qualify for the scheme a property must have been built or purchased by a housing association on or after 1st April 1997. Because of the 1997 deadline much of CCHA's housing is not eligible to purchase. There are also other restrictions which relate to the type of housing and the amount of time that a resident has spent as a public sector tenant. Those people who are un-discharged bankrupts, those who are subject to a possession order served by a court, or those that are subject to formal creditors' agreements made under the Insolvency Act are also restricted from purchasing.
