Right to Acquire


Right to Acquire (RTA) explained

If you became one of our customers on or after the 7th February 2011 you might have the Right to Acquire. If you were a customer on 7th February 2011 you might qualify for the Preserved Right to Buy.

The difference for tenants applying for Right to Acquire (as opposed to the Right to Buy) is the level of discount.

Discount is set by central government and the level is set regionally. The current level for Oldham is £9,000.00 after 3 years of being a tenant. This is a flat rate for all applications.

The Right to Acquire procedure follows the Right to Buy process.
