Amending Statutory Instrument
An amending Statutory Instrument has reduced the maximum discount in certain areas of England to £16,000 for individuals who wish to exercise their right to buy council property under part 5 of the Housing Act 1985 from 27th March. Similar Regulations will be introduced in Wales on 2nd April.
These changes have led Oyez to amend the Right to Buy Discount notes which accompany HA4A and HA4B (but not the forms themselves). The amended RTBDIS notes will accompany all orders received for HA4A and HA4B from the end of March. The information on HA7 has also been amended to reflect these changes.
THE CURRENT VERSIONS OF RTBDIS NOTES AND HA7 SHOULD NOT BE USED IN ENGLAND AFTER 27th MARCH AND IN WALES AFTER 2nd APRIL. THE AMENDED STOCKS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN EARLY APRIL.
