NIHE House Sales Scheme Temporary Suspension from 25/3/2020
Due to the latest government
guidance on COVID-19 (Coronavirus) the Housing Executive has made the decision
to suspend all non-critical business including house sales to sitting
tenants carried out in-house by its Land and Property staff under the
Statutory House Sales Scheme (Right to Buy).
This will be for an initial
period of eight (8) weeks from 25 March 2020 and may be subject to further
review depending on the circumstances then prevailing.
I would be very grateful if
the Law Society could notify all Solicitors that the Housing Executive will not
be in a position to complete any pending house sales contracts and/or
applications not completed before the date of suspension above. I confirm that
as soon as it is possible to resume normal working arrangements, the Housing
Executive will continue to complete any pending house sale application and/or
contract to purchase as soon as practicable thereafter.
