So I am a single mum of 2 kids and been on the housing list for 10 years. 3 years at a band B. I’ve bid on a property and number 4 and may stand a good chance of getting it. I want to get this in my name as this is the security me and my children need. My boyfriend owns a house not near me so moving with him isn’t an option and my kids go to school locally. If I wanted to move him in how would I go about doing this with him being a home owner? I hope this makes sense?! Thank you.

    Read your own signature goz, the lady is only asking. Maybe the owned house only has one bedroom.

    I'd suspect he could live with you but not be on the tenancy agreement.

    Do you live together as a couple now? If so then it may not be possible to rent from social housing. If you're not living together now and they do move in with you in the future because he owns a property that he doesn't live in then this may affect any means tested benefit you may claim in the future.

    This which means he'll be Helping to pay the rent and bills on the social housing plus his own mortgage and bills. Can he afford this?

    It was good of Poppy to point out the possible affects on any benefits received but you've just made the massive assumption that this woman doesn't work and support her children?  Wow..

    Maybe she does, maybe she doesn't.

    Maybe you should re-read what was written as Poppy neither said or implied anything of the sort.

    Sammyjammy's comment about the assumption was directed at _shel, just to clarify.

    I didn't read it like that but, with what you've said in mind,  I can now see what you mean. 
     Sammyjammy, I withdraw my earlier post.  ... now I'll get my coat.
