Housing Benefit is normally only paid for the rent you pay on one home at a time.
To keep receiving Housing Benefit when not living at your property all the following must apply: If you are paid housing benefit under the temporary absence rule and there is a change in your circumstances that means you no longer intend to return to the property you are claiming for, we will stop paying benefit from the date of change.
Also if it comes to light whilst you are away that you will be away for longer than initially thought you should contact us straight away as we may have to stop paying benefit.
This can be either in your home by another person, or outside your home by a former member of your family.
We always have to consider if it is reasonable to pay Housing Benefit and we may pay for up to 52 weeks.
