    If you are interested in buying the property, why not make an offer to the current owner.  From what you say the property needs urgent repair to make it habitable, and there may be a potential claim against the current owners (IANAL) from your mother for the disrepair.  It may well be that they'd be gald to get the place off their hands.

    Every housing association is not involve in this problem. Accounts usually handle by highly educated chartered accountatnts but the main problem is that they do not audit in a right way. As we know there is a lot money involve in housing business so this is the main reason for bad accountability. The other thing about the companies who charge high amount then it varies from organization to organization.
