My father who has previously been renting a property and receiving housing benefit but the tenancy is ending so will need to move. I have a spare bedroom in my roperty which I am looking to rent out. Could he claim housing benefit to live in my property?
Thanks for your reply. I will call my council. As much as I would love to give him mates rates I do need to charge for the spare room and would usually have a lodger but was just an idea to rent to him.
I had a friend who lived in the house next door to her parents which they owned and rented to her. She did get HB for it because they would normally rent it out otherwise. Maybe if you're doing it on that basis they might, worth a try.
