Hi, I'm Lea and I have reviewed your query.
Do you have a copy of the notice? Please attach using the paperclip.
Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.
I asked for the notice. Please don't send anything else unless I ask for it.
Have they actually served notice on you?
Unfortunately, groun 15A is a valid reason to serve notice on a secure tenant who has suceeded to a property that is considered to be too large for their needs.
Whilst you have your son living with you, and have provided them with evidence of this, if your son is an adult, they have no obligation to house him, and therefore may insist that their responsibility lies with rehousing you into suitable alternative accommodation, which in their view is a one bedroom property.
However, the good news is that it's not the council that make the final decision as to whether a property is suitable for you to be moved into - it's the court. The court will give you ample opportunity to provide a defence as to why you should not have to move, which in your case would include that you have your son living with you and need larger accommodation than a one bedroom.
Does that help clarify your position?
Yes, you should have the right to buy if your council operates that - there may be criteria you have to meet.
The succession documents and the notice are two separate issues. You can go ahead and sign the succession document - you need that to prove you succeeded the tenancy. Just date it with the date you sign it.
