Section 31: Effect of extinguishing of right to buy
97.Where a tenant’s right to buy has been extinguished by virtue of either of section 29(6) (tenant fails to give notice of intent to buy/tenant gives notice that does not intend to proceed to buy) or 32(8) (tenant fails to comply with an order of the Land Court under section 32(7) or has not otherwise concluded missives within a reasonable period) the tenant may acquire a subsequent right to buy the same land, or any part of the same land, under section 28(1).

Second, if during that 12 month period the land is transferred to another person and that person requires to give notice under section 26 the tenant will acquire a right to buy if section 28(1) is satisfied.
