The operation of the tenant purchase scheme for local authority apartments is a matter for individual housing authorities under Part 4 of the Housing (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009 and the associated Housing (Tenant Purchase of Apartments) Regulations 2011. Further Regulations will be made in due course prescribing the form of, and the terms and conditions to be specified in, the transfer orders and charging orders for use by housing authorities in operating the Scheme. It should be noted that these orders are not required until a housing authority has completed all the statutory steps in designating a particular apartment complex for tenant purchase and processing the required number of initial applications to purchase in that complex.
