    I have this claim where the clmt has put in a claim but I think it might count as a close relative and be non commercial.

    She is the daughter of the landlady’s ex husband (they have split up)

    As far as I’m aware this makes her still the daughter in law and therefore a close relative and not entitled to Housing Benefit.

    Its just with the fact that she is the daughter of her husband but they have plit up that is throwing doubt in my mind.

    As far as I can tell she is stil the Land lady’s daughter in law or I am i wrong on this?

    She was actually the STEP daughter of the landlady, and is therefore not classed as a close relative now that the landlady and the claimant’s father have split up.


    “close relative” means a parent, parent-in-law, son, son-in-law, daughter, daughter-in-law, step-parent, step-son, step-daughter, brother, sister, or if any of the preceding persons is one member of a couple, the other member of that couple;

    So far as I can see she meets the definition – I dont see splitting up as relevant until and if they divorce.

    This is not the same as non-commercial.


    Thanks for the help
