Home › Online forum › Gingerbread Forum › Staying in the house after split
I’m going through a split.
The problem I have is that the house and mortgage are both in his name 🙄
If he allows us to stay, he will ask me to pay him the mortgage. I’ve got no problem with this, but I can’t find anything about whether I would get housing benefit.
Do I need to be his ‘tenant’? Do I need to get a tenancy agreement or something?
