    We are receiving enquiries into housing benefit entitlement where students are living away from home to undertake a 1 year course to be run by a local college – Pre Vocational Foundation Year in Dance.

    We have confirmed this is further education and it seems the applicants will be aged around 16, 17 years of age and still eligible for Child Benefit, but with no other actual income. 

    I am not sure if there would there be an issue around liabilty at this age in these circumstances, especially  if a parent had signed for a tenancy on their behalf?.
