Have just applied for a settlement visa for my wife and stepson. We are going to stay with my mother to start with, as i have been living in Thailand for the last 11 years.
My question is if after a while if I find rented accommodation will I be able to claim housing allowance, I know I can claim child benefit and child tax credits.
Any help would be appreciated, I am unable to get a mortgage as been out of country to long and when i am able to apply for one need to pay it of by my pensionable age, which would give me 4 years to pay it. thanks in advance for any help
