Hi I am giving up my council tenancy that I have had for 25 years it has two bedroom one is used for my friend who stays about once or twice a week to take care of my needs and disabilities. Giving up my house because its a top flat three floors high, not been able to get up and down I got a letter from my doctor to support medical needs to be considered for a first floor house I was turned down by my council.
I have found a siutable private two bedroom flat to rent at £475 a month which is higher than what i was getting at previous house.
Will i still get housing benefit and whats the best way to go about this i am paying the deposit but do i have to pay the first months rent as well and how do i change over fom one to another.
I am recieving high rate care and mobility
esa with the support group and severe disabilment .
Iwould like to thank you in advance for any comment that you provide.
