Right to Buy or Acquire
Right to Buy (RTB) or Right to Acquire (RTA) are schemes that enable our customers who rent their homes to buy them from us at a discount.
Right to Buy
The Preserved Right to Buy scheme is available to customers who held secure tenancies with Chelmsford Borough Council, which were transferred to us when we took ownership in March 2002. If you’ve remained a customer in the same property since this date, you may be eligible. If you’re eligible, you’ll receive a discount off the market value of your home, depending on your length of tenancy, up to a maximum of £84,600.
