Right to Buy Scheme

Volume 459: debated on Monday 30 April 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what plans she has to amend the Housing (Right to Buy) (Information to Secure Tenants) Order 2005 (S.I., 2005, No.1735) to include a requirement that the type of construction and any known defects associated with the type of construction should be included in the seller’s information. (134180)

There are no plans to do this. Section 125 of the Housing Act 1985 already requires social landlords to inform tenants who apply to purchase their homes under the Right to Buy scheme of any structural defect known to the landlord.
