The Welsh Government has recently announced that the right of council tenants to buy or acquire their homes will end on 26 January 2019.
This follows landmark legislation which was passed by the Welsh Government earlier this year.
Right to Buy was first introduced in the 1980’s and gave council tenants the legal right to buy their property at a discount.
The recent legislation will mean that Right to Buy will be abolished completely in Wales.
Eligible tenants will be able to submit a Right to Buy application to the Council up to, and including, 25 January 2019. Any application made after this date will not be accepted.
Lead Member for Housing, Cllr David Griffiths, said: “This is a significant piece of legislation for Wrexham and the whole of Wales. It will see an end to a scheme which has been in place for over 30 years.
“Letters are being sent to all of our council tenants to inform them of the changes and we’ve also made information available online and in our Housing Hotline tenants newsletter.”
