Question:

Why is there another pilot?

Answer


The new pilot will test two important parts of the scheme that weren’t tested in the original pilot, one for one replacement and portability. Portability is when a tenant cannot purchase their current home they are offered an option to port their discount to an alternative property of belonging to their housing association or another willing housing association.

The Government want to test this so that tenants have a smooth experience when vRTB is rolled out nationally.
