Why might you deny a Right to Acquire application?
Your Right to Acquire may be denied if:
- You have not been an assured tenant for three years;
- A joint tenant hasn’t given their consent for the other tenant to buy without them;
- We’re unable to verify your, or other applicant’s, identity;
- The property isn’t your main home;
- We do not hold enough interest in the property i.e. a lease for less than 50 years for a flat or less than 35 years for a house;
- There’s a court order for possession of your home against you or someone at your home;
- The court has suspended your Right to Acquire because of antisocial behaviour;
- You are ‘un-discharged bankrupt’;
- You are being declared bankrupt;
- You have made a voluntary arrangement with creditors i.e. an individual or company voluntary arrangement;
