    I have a single parent who has moved into a room or rooms in a property owned by her ex stepfather, i.e. her mum’s ex husband. He also lives in the house. She’s moved to our area to escape domestic violence.

    I understand that resident step parents are classed as close relatives when deciding on eligibility, but does this restriction still apply when the relationship with the applicant’s parent has ended, and the “blood parent” is not resident?

    Many thanks.


    HBR 2 : “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;

    As long as you are satisfied with the arrangement then yes I would say it’s ok to pay.


    Thank you, I suspected that might be the case. Need to look into the commerciality of the arrangement now.

    Thanks for your reply.
