Reply To: Death of partner – sale of property and rent back


This was the angle we were trying to aim for, yes she sold the property and remained in it but when you look at the facts there was solid reasoning for it and the new owner picked the property up to add to his business portfolio- there is no evidence to point to their being any collusion involved in it. 

Evidently a then genuine arangement between landlord and tenant commenced and they didn't claim HB / CTR/S.

Capital in the bank ready to complete on another property and then a completely life changing set of events stopped it all.

She didn't immediately claim HB/CTR/S but has now got to a point where she has no income and through claiming Income Support has now come back to how she is going to pay the rent and council tax. Her plight is desperate and genuine.
