Hi there, I've been using this forum for advice throughout my benefits journey having returned to reside in the UK in December.

 

At present, I am receiving IB JSA jointly along with my partner. Initially, our claim was refused as I own a property in my sole name which was rented until February 2013. That was classed as a "second property" hence the refusal until we moved back into the property. We have a little girl aged 17 months. The strain of returning to the UK with no money has taken it's toll on our relationship and we are to separate.

 

I understand that after our separation I would require to claim Income Support which is not means tested. We have agreed that I shall stay in my property with our daughter. If possible however, I would like to move to a 2 bedroom property closer to my parents as my property only has 1 bedroom.

 

My query is as follows, as Income Support is not means tested, would I be able to rent out my property and receive an income from that whilst claiming Hosing Benefit for another property?

 

Many thanks

Income Support and Housing Benefit are both means tested.

 

So if your equity in the property you own is valued at more than £16k, you would not be entitled to either.
