What is the Right to Acquire (RTA)?

If you became a tenant of First Choice Homes Oldham Limited on or after the 7th February 2011 you might have the Right to Acquire. If you were a tenant 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 5 years of being a tenant. This is a flat rate for all applications.

The procedure for doing this follows the Right to Buy process.
