Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
For now please let me know whether the tenancy has ever been succeeded before please?
Ok - in that case that is good news.
You are entitled to one succession per tenancy
So when your mum passes then you would be entitled to stay. You have to live there for 1 year
Once this happens then you have a right to buy
But until that happens you have no right to buy as you are not the tenant
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes you can seek a review of the decision
That is by going to the Local Government Ombudsman (www.lgo.org.uk)
Or by seeking a Judicial Review
You can appeal yes
Does that help?
You should refuse on the basis that you dont know whether your mum will be long term in care and in any event you would be entitled to succeed
You may be yes and you can appeal the decision as discussed.
You also need to check Council policy
And contact your Councillor
