Currently I am unemployed and receiving ESA, due to an ongoing medical problem. I am also in receipt of housing / council tax benefit, on my rented flat.

I am seriously thinking of moving(only a few miles) to a similar priced acomodation, but it falls under a different council. I realise what housing benefit you receive depends on the post code you live, which I have checked, and there is minimal difference . Would I be in my rights to move,and still be in receipt of similar financial help?

Thanking you in advance.

Yes, you just have to apply for your LHA and CTB with the new council. You can also ask them for a "pre-tenancy determination" if you know the new rent and charges.

I'm not a qualified welfare rights adviser, but I'm planning on becoming one. I'm no substitute for more competent advice from trained CAB and welfare rights workers - [URL="http://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk/forum/benefits-tax-credits-minimum/127741-benefits-advice.html"]see this post[/URL] by Joa, great advice and links! I've been running a Crisis Loan campaign and help since Jan 2007 . See my annotations c/o "theyworkforyou". I'm also currently interested by the recent DWP Medical Services reform and the effect this is having on valid claims, seriously - someone needs to be keeping a suicide count.
