Abolition of the Right to Buy and Associated Right (Wales) Bill

Abolition of the Right to Buy and Associated Rights (Wales) Bill was introduced in the National Assembly for Wales today. The Bill provides for the Right to Buy, the Preserved Right to Buy and the Right to Acquire for tenants of local authorities and registered social landlords to be abolished. These rights will end, for new homes, two months after Royal Assent; and for any existing housing stock these rights will be abolished at least one year after Royal Assent.

The Welsh Government consulted upon the proposals within the Bill in its White Paper on the future of the Right to Buy and Right to Acquire. The report of the responses to the consultation can be found at:
