Nearly 200 housing association tenants every day are registering their interest to buy their property though the extended Right to Buy scheme, according to official figures.
The figures show that more than 11,000 tenants have already registered for the chance to buy their own home since the Government extended the scheme.
The figures also reveal that nearly 270,000 households have purchased a home through schemes such as Right to Buy and Help to Buy since 2010.
The Government said this has raised £230m for councils to build new homes.
Housing minister, Brandon Lewis, said: ‘We are determined to make people's aspiration for owning their own home a reality and these figures show the growing eagerness of tenants to take up their Right to Buy.’
