    An RSL tenant has been sentenced to 2 years in prison but has requested that the RSL keep his tenancy open.

    The proposal is for his girlfriend to move in to the property (not previously resident or listed as a tenant) and become a “Caretaker Tenant”.

    Rent would be paid against the original tenants rent account and the girlfriend would not have her own tenancy set-up.

    Is this eligible for HB?

    Whilst the RSL have written to confirm that she is able to move in and take over payment of rent, i can’t see how she has a liability with a tenancy agreement, i.e. if she didn’t pay any rent, i think they would pursue the original tenant for arrears.

    Any views??
