The eligibility criteria for the Right to Buy are set out in the Housing Act 1985. In fulfilling their statutory duties, landlords are responsible for processing Right to Buy applications and assessing the eligibility of Right to Buy applicants. In December 2013, the Department published a guidance document for landlords which provides best practice advice on all aspects of the Right to Buy process.
