My daughter works but is on a low income, she has a young son under 2
and gets working tax credits and housing benefit. She is with a landlord that is not good at repairs. I want to buy a flat and rent it to her to ensue a good quality home for my daughter and grandson, but she would still need to claim housing benefit as I would need the money to pay for the flat
We are looking to purchase a 2 bedroom flat which is the same as she is in at present. Her rent is £380 pm and gets £350 pm housing benefit. We would rent at about £400 pm for furnished accommodation and know it was wind and water tight at all times as we would care about the property and be financially committed as we would have to re-mortgage our own house to make this happen.
