I claim Jobseeker`s Allowance for 5 months and I try to claim some support Housing Benefit and Council Tax but I have problem with finishing my application form for a H. Benefit because I rent flat with my girlfriend (we are not married) She is from EU country and she has flat abroad and H. Benefit Office wants value of this property to finish registration process. (She had that property before we met) Is this right? I am the person who needs help from City Council not my partner because she work and she is got income. Getting the value of this property is so complicated and cost lots of money in her country (travel costs ect...).Anyone has idea how to avoid this problem?

Thanks Rob

Doesn't make a jot of difference. It has to be included in the assessment. There is no way around it. If you fail to provide the information the local authority request your claim for housing benefit will fail.


My advice is based on my opinion, my experience and my education. I do not profess to be an expert in any given field. If requested, I will provide a link where possible to relevant legislation or guidance, so that advice provided can be confirmed and I do encourage others to follow those links for their own peace of mind. Sometimes my advice is not what people necesserily want to hear, but I will advise on facts as I know them - although it may not be what a person wants to hear it helps to know where you stand. Advice on the internet should never be a substitute for advice from your own legal professional with full knowledge of your individual case.

Yes, and likely be prosecuted for fraud as a result. It's not worth it, mate. Just look around the forums at how many people who have been caught out.

Quite easily. It's very interesting the things benefit sections can find out. Fraud sections obviously have far more powers in what information they can obtain. Too many people have the mentality that they simply won't declare it and the benefit section will never know. IT doesn'tquite work like that. They might not at the beginning but the longer a claim goes on without something declared, the higher the penalty for the claimant when they do discover fraud.
