    Hi Can anyone help please.

    We have  a sponsored immigrant living with her British partner. Her passport is stamped no work or recourse to public funds, as it would be, being a sponsored person.

    However, the sponsor is also the partners mother, whom they are also renting the property from. This therefore makes the sponsor also the landlord.

    My question is are they allowed to claim Housing and Council tax benefit as a couple in this scenario. The question of commerciality of the tenancy has already been addressed, we are purely looking at eligibility from a sponsor who is landlord.

    Many thanks
