Rejected petition Bring back the right to buy council houses

Give the right to existing council tenants to buy their council houses.

The right to buy scheme was abolished in Wales in 2019. However, I believe it should be brought back, to give tenants, who have lived there in their homes for years, an opportunity to buy them and ensure security for the future.

More details

Personally this would be a great opportunity to buy our home. There is a structural fault on our council houses in our area, although they are safe to live in them. The reduced value would enable us to afford a small loan or mortgage to buy our housesI
