Why is the scheme called "Voluntary"?
The Government made an election manifesto commitment to extend the Right to Buy to housing association tenants and was voted in by the public to do this. Housing associations agreed to work with the Government to deliver it voluntarily as this addresses concerns around supply and independence of the sector. For example, it will allow us to replace the homes sold and protects certain, hard-to-replace homes from being sold.
