The agreement so far is a 4/3 split in her favour, with me contributing about 100 pounds a week in maintenance to care for them. She has also just been made redundant.
I earn £38k and she is now claiming benefits because she was made redundant.
She is looking to rent from a private landlord, because the council/housing association can not help as she is listed on the mortgage.
We took out a 100% mortgage.
Yes, if she is entitled to it. As I understand it, she can only claim housing benefit if she has less than 6k on assets for the full amount with entitlement reducing up to 16k in assets.
