FOI Request Right To Buy

Request 101001609282

I request:
- The total number of council houses sold off under Right To Buy in your local area
-  An estimate of how many of these homes are now owned by private landlords.

Response 20-09-2017

- Sales to sitting tenants to buy public authority dwellings by Local Authority area from Financial Year 1998/99 to the end of the Right to Buy 2016/17 are published by the Scottish Government and are available here therefore this information is exempt under Section 25 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Information Otherwise accessible. However we also have it detailed below:

 

Financial Year Total
1998/99 118
1999/00 182
2000/01 134
2001/02 173
2002/03 217
2003/04 181
2004/05 196
2005/06 196
2006/07 125
2007/08 128
2008/09 68
2009/10 37
2010/11 35
2011/12 25
2012/13 14
2013/14 32
2014/15 32
2015/16 25
2016/17 62
2017-end 10

NB-10 sales applied before end of Right to Buy, sale gone through in this financial year. 

- We have no way of knowing who ownership may have transferred on to and therefore could not identify (even as a guesstimate) how many would now be owned by private landlords, therefore this information is exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002- Information Not Held.
