Why do I have to reside in the property built on the block for six months when it is offered through First Right of Refusal?

The First Right of Refusal component of the Buyback Scheme was developed to provide legal certainty to eligible homeowners wanting the opportunity to return to their block and community as soon as they were able to. The First Right of Refusal provides a financial advantage to former owners as they do not need to compete at public auction to repurchase the block.
