    Homelife 15th Apr 19 at 10:57 PM
    Hi
    dont know if this the right place to put this, i am sure the mods will put it where its supposed to be.
    i recently rang up council about homelife and was turned down.
    the situation is my elderley mother lives in this house, i am the legal owner and to protect her she is
    a benificial owner, she is 83 and is on pension credit, their reasoning was that i am her landlord,
    how can this be if she is a benifical owner, or dosent the person on the other end of the line understand.
    they said all i can get is eco stuff and we have that already.
    it seems like the council website for homelife is misleading, could somebody please explain as i think
    a benificial owner is not a tennant to a landlord or maybe i am wrong.
    regards to all

    If it is your name then no she doesb't qualify as a owner occupier.
    I enjoy flower arranging, kittens, devil worship, the study of serial killers and their methods and road kill jigsaws.
