    Hi,

    It looks like my partner and I may be separating. We bought a house just over a year ago, we are yet to decide what to do but I may keep on living here as it would be unsettling to make our kids move again in such a short span of time (that’s if we can agree on this!). Would I still be able to claim benefits if he’s a joint owner and on the mortgage? I mean non-housing related benefits like child and working tax credits. Is the fact that he wouldn’t be on the bills, council tax etc enough proof that he no longer lives here?

    Thank you for any advice on this.
