My in laws have the right to buy their council house with a fairly significant discount. They cant however afford to buy it. - I can ! I am planning on funding the purchase (which has to be in their name) and after the set time (5 Yrs) the place is transfered into my name and becomes mine. They become my tennants and then when they pop their clogs I flog it and make a tidy profit. Sounds simple enough - anyone got any experience or points to make on this sort of scenario.
