Right to Acquire
Tenants who transferred to us from Vale Royal Borough Council may have the choice of purchasing through the Preserved Right to Buy Scheme or the Right to Acquire scheme.
If you became a tenant of Weaver Vale Housing Trust after the date of the transfer of housing from the Council, you may be eligible to buy your home under the Right to Acquire Scheme so long as certain requirements are met. Some properties are excluded from the scheme for reasons similar to those above but also because of the properties location.
If your home is situated in one of the following areas you will not be entitled to purchase your property under the Right to Acquire scheme:
ASTON BY BUDWORTH
To be eligible to buy you must have spent at least 2 years (or 5 years if your tenancy commences after 18th January 2005) as a public sector tenant, which can include being a tenant of ours. You must also be living in a house or flat that is self contained and is your only or main home.
