Sales of High Value Council Homes - Briefing Paper

In May 2015 the Conservative Party fought the general election with a manifesto commitment to extend the 'right to buy' to tenants of housing associations funded by the sale of high value council homes. This policy was subsequently included in the Queen's speech and the government's legislative programme for 2015/16.

This briefing paper summarises the proposals for the sale of high value council homes and the reaction of the sector. It also provides commentary and speculates about the detailed financial arrangements.

It includes sections on:
  • Response of the sector to extending the right to buy
  • Sale of high value council homes
  • Response of the sector to the sale of high value council homes
  • Impact in London
  • Potential financial arrangements

Update: These policies were included in the Housing & Planning Act 2016 but the relevant provisions had not been enacted by December 2017. At that time Sajid Javid, Secretary of State for Communities & Local Government said that they would not be implemented until April 2019.
