Thanks nukecad, yes I think its looking good so far, it really would be a huge worry lifted if we escaped the Councils clutches, my wife got the right to buy pack today and I cant see any problems. Right now we pay £70 per week to the Council in rent straight out of our benefits so that would end, and the little pension I got a few years ago would be returned to us, at the moment they take nearly all of it from our housing benefits even after they promised it wouldn't affect anything. Obviously we wont be better off when we go ahead, there's a lot to do and pay for, but the security it will provide for my wife is beyond money.

When we get closer to a final decision I'll put it all down on paper and take advice as you suggested.

My Son is a great young guy, I'm so proud of him
