Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Welcome to Just Answer, I am a solicitor in England and Wales and I will be dealing with your case today.
Kindly note, I am not available for phone calls at the moment, however I can easily assist you via this online chat.
I will go through your question and will get back to you with my answer shortly.
Meanwhile, please ignore any phone call request pop-up, they get generated automatically without any input from the expert, so I have no control over these requests.
To be able to get housing benefits to help with paying the rent, your BF needs to have an Assured shorthold tenancy agreement with his brother. If your Bf is staying with his brother informally , ( without any formal written tenancy agreement) then council would not be able to help your BF with housing benefit.
I trust this helps.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
In the meantime, thank you for using Just Answers. Best wishes.
