Hi there,

Please view the following link and scroll down to the section that states 'when you may not be able to claim'. It clearly states when you live in the home of a close relative.

The link is - https://www.gov.uk/housing-benefit

I hope this helps and please do let me know if I can help with anything else.

Kind regards,
