    Buying housing association property. A Question. 11th Jul 17 at 11:28 AM
    Hi.

    My Dad is going to by his housing association property. This house used to be a council house then it went over to a housing assocation.

    On the Right to Buy application form will he have to put a separate tenacy agreement for the council house years and the housing association years?

    Thanks.

    Why doesn't he just ask the Housing Association? I'm pretty sure they'll know the answer.

    I don't know if any of you can help me I have been in my HA house over 20 yrs now and been told cos I don't have a guaranteed assured tenancy I don't get 50% discount but I was told a guaranteed assured tenancy didn't exist that long ago and they are only offering me £16,000 discount now. Do I stand to get the higher discount as I have my original tenancy in hand but as the other didn't exist surely I am entitled to the higher discount. Can anyone please help me with this?

    If the property has always been HA you may have the right to acquire which has different discounts to right to buy properties.
