Data on the number of new tenancies initiated under the Rent to HomeBuy scheme are not held centrally.
Under Rent to HomeBuy prospective purchasers rent a home for up to five years with the opportunity to buy on shared ownership terms during or at the end of this period.
When the tenant subsequently buys an initial share in due course, this information will be recorded on CORE (continuous recording) sales returns from registered social landlords to the Tenant Services Authority.
I refer the hon. Member to the answers my right hon. Friend the Member for Derby, South (Margaret Beckett) gave to him on 6 May 2009, Official Report, column 244W, 19 May 2009, Official Report, column 1357W, and 21 May 2009, Official Report, columns 1540W and 1546W respectively.
The Tenants Services Authority has not provided any funding to the Rent to HomeBuy scheme. All investment in this scheme by Communities and Local Government has been directed through the Homes and Communities Agency.
