This answer was rated:

What is the legal age to leave home without parental consent? My neice is 16 in July and wants to move out of home to live with her grandparents due to problems at home.
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
Once she is 16 your niece is free to live wherever she wishes and neither the courts not the police will intervene.
he grandparents will be able to claim Child Benefit and Child Maintenance for her!
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
