To Jeffrey Shaw, or other readers who have the facts: Jeffrey, in early April this year you said the amended Right To Buy rules were not yet in force. Am I right in thinking they are now in force? (ie after 5 years' tenancy, 35% discount for a house and 50% discount for a flat).
Also, does anyone know whether one's number of public housing tenancy years can cross county boundaries? eg.would 5 years as a tenant in Derbyshire, 10 years tenancy in Berkshire and 1 year's tenancy in Sheffield amount to 16 years on a Right To Buy application on the house in Sheffield?
the amount of discount can cross borders , as you say , i had 10 years discount from 3 different councils when i used my right to buy , also it does not need to be consecutive years you can have a break between tennancies , what matters is your total years as a council tennant
