hi all, i hope you can help me. my mother has recently passed away,i have been living with her for the past 35 years in a council house until 1999 when it was sold to a housing association,before the sell off mum had a secure tenancy with protected rites plus rite to buy. then she became a assured tenant with the same rites. in 2005 we had a meeting with the association to confirm my succession . i was told, i would succeed to mums tenancy as i was the only succession , i would also get protected rites and rite to buy as this was in mums tenancy unfortunately i would not be aloud to stay in the house due to under occupancy rules, and they would find me a suitable place to live.
they have now found me a place which i am about to except, but have now been told i will get mums assured tenancy but not with protected rites or rite to buy, as its only contractual, i feel cheated and misled as mum and i discussed buying her house previously but decided that as i would succeed to the rite to buy, it would be better to wait and try and buy the new place i was offered .as it would be cheaper. are they within there rites to go back on their word. thanks.
