House of Lords Impact on Right to Buy

Interesting to read a story from Estate Agent Today advising that the House of Lords as voted in favour of an amendment to the housing bill in relation to the right to buy scheme which would prevent charities being compelled to use or dispose of their assets in a way which is inconsistent with their charitable purposes.  As I have mentioned I am generally supportive of the idea of right to buy but  I do think that the proposals need to be very carefully considered before being enacted.  I will update you as soon as I hear further.
