New figures have been released showing the number of "right to buy" sales in North Yorkshire and the East Riding.
- 34 homes have been sold in the last nine months in the East Riding
- 15 homes have been sold in the last nine months in York
- 18 homes have been sold in the last nine months in North Yorkshire - but none were sold in Hambleton and Ryedale with seven being sold in Selby.
Housing Minister Mark Prisk said:
“The reinvigorated Right to Buy has opened the door to home ownership for thousands of tenants across the country and I’m delighted to see so many taking up this opportunity.
“But from the 200,000 hits on our website, to the councils that report to me the surge they’ve seen in applications, I know there are many more that want to follow in their footsteps.
“I would urge any tenant aspiring to buy their home to contact their council or visit www.communities.gov.uk/righttobuy to find out how they can take their first step onto the property ladder.”
