Dear Southwark Borough Council,

You have asked me 'Please can you clarify what you mean by Ex-right to buy home'.

These are ex council properties which were brought by tenants under the right to buy, and may have become available for subsequent re-purchase by the council.

Yours faithfully,

Paul Burnham
