Hi,

Just wondering if anyones knows about shared ownership and housing benefit.

I know that housing benefit is only to help with rent, and therefore can receive housing benefit.

But do they still take into the consideration your mortgage payment to calculate your housing benefit? And as long as it is only the amount of the rent or less then you are entitled to it?

Or do they not even take this into consideration in their calculations?

Thanks in advance.
