Reinvigorating the Right to Buy and one-for-one replacement

Last updated: 2 Feb 2012

Consulting body:
Department for Communities and Local Government
Period of consultation:
Runs from 1 December 2011 to 2 February 2012
CML action:
The CML has responded to the Consultation by DCLG on extending the Right to Buy and one-for-one stock replacement. Our response emphasises that any extension of RTB should not be implemented in a way which fetters lenders’ decision-making about the suitability of an applicant or of the property. We also flag concerns about the viability of the proposals to deliver one-for-one replacement in different areas of the country.
