Front Cover
H.M. Stationery Office, 1996 - Housing subsidies - 181 pages
Claimants of Housing Benefit who share their homes with adults other than their husbands, wives or partners may be liable for a reduction in their Housing Benefit; the reduction is due to non-dependent deductions. What are the characteristics of such households? What are the financial relationships between claimants and non-dependents? What are the effects of non-dependent deductions on households? How well do people understand the deductions? This report, the result of in-depth interviews amongst households affected by non-dependent deductions, quantitative surveys of claimants and their non-dependants, and interviews with local authority Housing Benefit managers, answers the questions.
