Reply To: Support Charges

Leonard Payne

The actual question asked by Jaus was “Can accommodation be classed as exempt accommodation if there is no charge for the care support and supervision?’ and the answer is YES. There doesn’t need to be a charge for the tenant, and of course, if there was, it would be ineligible.

Due diligence, however, might lead you to ask the question as to how support is funded. Supervision I would argue, is payable particularly for vulnerable people as this could be regarded as Health and Safety and allowable under 1.1(g)
