There a few issues going on here, so bear with me.

Young guy not uk national , split with his wife uk national and two children. Had been working, but didnt update his visa and passport revoked, for worries of him taking kids. Lost job, hit rock bottom. Claims nothing at moment friends help him live. Has now been granted access to children, and is waiting for passport to be returned anytime !!!!!!(can they do that, not give a time scale).

As soo as he gets passport he will look for job and accomodation. Will he be entitled to HB and if so will be be able to look for a 2 bed as he will be able to have his kids weekends.

Thanks for your help.

Not sure if this varies according to which council, but in my area a single parent with overnight access can be given a 2 bed property, but only in one of the multi-storey blocks that no one else wants to live in. They do have to have proof, either from the court or the ex, that the children are allowed to stay overnight.

You could try speaking to your council, shelter or citizen's advice.

He needs to check with his local Council to get the right information but everything I have found says that he would not be entitled to the local housing allowance for a 2-bedroom property. All the information I have seen says that only if he is in receipt of child benefit for the children would he be entitled and to get this they must live with him not just stay at the weekends.

Thank you both, he will be happy with a 1 bed, even a bedsit as he is living with frends at the moment. So he should be entitled to a one bed then. That will be good news for him
