    Hi All,
    Its my first time here! And a proud father to be!
    Would like to know as we are in a position where we own our own property but we are renting it out on a fixed term contract at present.
    As we relocated to back to our original home town, we are now currently renting a small bedroom with on ensuite. My concerns are that this room will not be suitable for when the baby comes (only 11 weeks at present). As we own our own property but cannot live there as mentioned above, would there be any help? If the midwife feels that this room is not suitable then what?
    Anyone can help on this subject I would be very grateful.

    Hi I can tell you that you would not be eligible for any housing benefit or council tax benefit as the value of your other property has to be used as capital value, this would defiantly take you over the £16,000 limit.

    Because you own a property you wont be entitled to any housing help, as you would be expected to live in your own property or sell it to fund you living in another place.
