Housing benefit, renting from family.
If my parents purchase my house as I cannot afford the mortgage. Would I be able to claim housing benefit? Or any type of help with the rent?
Claiming Housing Benefit When Renting From Family
Unfortunately it isn’t possible to claim housing benefit if the landlord of your property is a family member and equally if you’ve previously owned the property, the councils won’t give you any benefits either.
So I think it’s well worth checking with your local council but I think that’s the general rule throughout the United Kingdom.
