In reality this is one area where the private sector is streets ahead of the social sector. I am a local authority leaseholder, but a former director of a large private sector development of over 400 badly built, modern flats. In these flats, the service charge was over £2000 per year, mainly due to s20 notices and planned maintenance that was prescribed in the lease, and, because there was a rich, greedy freeholder looking for opportunities to fleece the lessees, the very letter of the lease was upheld, and where a point was unclear, legal advice was sought.

I think this one went the same way as putting the homeless onto houseboats - sunk without a trace, but failed to take the originator with it - sadly!
I am waiting for suggestions. Is there anyone who can help me out.

If you are a council tenant and you exchange with another council tenant (doesn't necessarily need to be the same council) you will normally keep the right to buy. If you're council and looking to exchange with a housing association property it may not be the case so be careful.
No Worries PD, we all have them days
