The Right to Buy Form

The right to buy forms are also known as RTB1. The right to buy form is used to apply to buy your home through the right to buy scheme.

This right to buy form will allow you to apply and assess your eligibility for the right to buy scheme. If you are eligible the council will write back to you informing you of the size of your discount and the price at which they want to sell the home. The discounts available with the right to buy scheme are much more than that on offer with the right to acquire scheme.

If you want to apply for the right to acquire scheme then you will need the right to acquire form rather than a right to buy form. You can see the discounts available with the right to acquire here.
