Am I eligible for Right To Acquire (RTA) ?

You may have the Right To Aquire if you:

  • are an assured tenant and have held a tenancy for a three year continuous period

  • live in a property that was built or acquired with public funds from 01 April 1997 onwards

  • live in a property that was transferred from a council to a housing association after 1st February 2000

You do not have the RTA if:

  • the courts have issued a possession order for you to leave your home

  • you are undergoing bankruptcy proceedings

  • you live in housing specially provided for older people or (in certain cases) disabled people

  • you have the Right to Buy

  • your property is located in certain rural parishes

N.B This is not a definite list and other property exclusions may apply

The discount to purchase your home under Right To Acquire is a fixed rate set by the Government which is not related to tenancy years.

Please contact Aspire Housing to request an application pack and to discuss in more detail the requirements needed to support each application.

Please be advised, we do not accept any applications through the post or hand-delivered as they will be returned as not followed the correct application process.
