Husband lost his job on the 19th of this month and I work part time in a pub (currently waiting for this 80% wage to kick in) so will get around £100 per week for my wages.
We have one child and have now applied for universal credit.
We could not apply for housing costs/benefit whatever it is called because we live with my mother in her house. She is 72 and on pension.
So....as we were paying my mum £500 per month to live in the house and towards the household bills, we will no longer be able to do this and it will put a massive strain on her finances.
We can not claim any help towards this because it is not an official tenancy or anything so what my question is...
If they say that we can expect to live rent free and take advantage of my mum, can she then claim as we are three dependants?
Or possibly at the very least, get some kind of reduction in council tax or something as we will be classed as a family on low income and on benefits, all residing at her house and paying nothing.
It is quite confusing and something we are not familiar with as we have always worked and not been in this situation before.
Thank you for any advice.
I don't know, I'm not clued up all on the legalities of things like this.
I was worried that the administrators had more powers or could demand the goods back.
Thank you I will have a read of the threads.
No official advice yet but my understanding is that you will accrue holiday. We are awaiting confirmation from the government.
They could ask you not to accrue holiday over statutory minimum, but they cannot remove a statutory right.
and so what if they do....
they never had any legal powers even when they were still trading...they are not bailiffs!!
you need to be reading a few brighthouse threads here jacko..use our search top right
