Hi, thank you for your message. Benefits are means tested and thus will depend on individual circumstances. In some cases (depending on individual circumstances) a person can still get benefits even though they own a house. You can read more about this here: https://www.gov.uk/housing-and-universal-credit/property-you-own. He can read more about eligibility of housing benefit here: https://www.gov.uk/housing-benefit. I would advise that he contacts his local council directly to explain the circumstances and determine his eligibility for benefits as every situation will be different. He can contact his local council using this link:https://www.gov.uk/find-local-council.
