Bit of a complicated one this. My sister relocated to Edinburgh after her marriage broke down and has been renting a flat from myself via the letting agent I have used for years.
As a single parent with a young child of school age her only income is whatever her partner decides to give her (he works abroad). She owns a small flat out right which is mortgage free in which our dad a retired pensioner has lived rent free for the last 9 years.
She declared all this on the application, but has since had the claim refused and their reason is that the property she owns is worth over £16k , is this correct as its the first ever housing benefit claim she has submitted.
