Housing Benefit is a benefit for low-paid people that helps you pay for a home rental. The amount of housing allowance depends on the cost of renting a home and the ratio of your income. In addition, you are assessed on how much savings you have, how many people are living in a rented accommodation, their age and other factors that determine a decision to receive this benefit.
To apply for a housing benefit, you need to have the following documents:
- your tenancy agreement;
- Proof of a payment of Council Tax bills;
- your income information (P60, P45 form, payslips or annual tax returns);
- bank account statements;
