Reply To: Pensioner renting from his daughter – contrived/commercial tenancy?


Indeed, thanks Dayglow.  Appreciated….looking at para 33 of "Morrell " . I accept that there is a strong argument to say financial support from father in this case has the 'character of income' , to borrow an expression from the decision as our chap is expected to repay it. 

Am proposing that our department look at our overall policy re 'Voluntary ' & 'Charitable' payments where a claimant expects to repay the money that they our receiving from relatives & friends.
