    I think it is very unfair that life term tenancies get a social house for life, able to pass onto their partner/ family member. If they want to buy the house the government will let them buy it at a discounted rate. If I want to buy a house will the government offer me such a discounted rate? No. I live in a council estate, my parents bought the flat at the market rate not a discounted rate. Everyone who lives in the council estate and live in social housing are either at working age but not working or retired. Why shouldn't people in social housing get an unfair advantage over people who are renting and saving up for a deposit. You might as well try quit your job, have a child, get a social house, get a secured tenancy, get another job, buy the house at a discounted price when you are ready.
