Reply To: Dad paying rent for claimant


I seem to recall there is a piece of caselaw that says the HB claimant does not have to use the HB to actually pay their rent. I am currently WFH, so dont have access to my antiquated paper ‘digest’ of caselaw, so cant look for it. If she is liable to pay rent, and entitled to HB, and you are paying it, i wouldnt look into it much further. Put it this way – if Dad is actually paying the rent in full, at least you dont have to insider topping up her rent via DHP!
