House Sales Scheme is ending – August 2022
On 28 August 2022 the statutory House Sales Scheme for Apex tenants will permanently and completely close. This scheme enables eligible tenants to purchase their social home supported by a discount.
From this date, no new applications can be made to the House Sales Scheme. To be clear, applications to the Sales Scheme must be made before midnight on 27 August 2022. No applications can be accepted after that time. As long as an application is made before midnight on 27 August 2022, the application may be processed and the sale may complete after that date.
The closure of the House Sales Scheme on 28 August 2022 reflects legislation passed by the Northern Ireland Assembly on 30 June 2020 and given Royal Assent on 28 August 2020.
Further information on the House Sales Scheme is available on NI Direct.
