This chapter introduces the concept of the Right to Buy (RTB) policy, which is considered the most successful housing policy in Britain since World War II. It looks on both the old criticisms of the RTB and the new challenges that are posed to this housing policy. The chapter introduces two cases of RTB households and discusses in detail the topics that will be covered in this book. The latter portion of the chapter provides a summary of the next six chapters.
