Just got a letter from our housing association and its news to us.
Apparantly, as of 1 April 2011, anyone living in our household that is not a joint tenant, will mean there will be a deduction from our Housing Benefit.
The HB is in my Myself and my partners name, we have 3 kids aged under 18, But the tenancy is my partners only.
So does a partner count as a non dependant? very confusing letter, lol.
Anyone heard of this new rule anyway?
