The future of Right to Buy in Scotland

A response by the BSA

We support the Scottish Government’s vision for all people in Scotland to live in high-quality, sustainable housing.

Right to buy is a way of creating mixed communities and in some cases, increasing revenue for reinvestment for social housing. We do not believe that the right to buy should be removed completely, instead the discounts should be decreased to make it a financially viable option for both tenants and landlords.
