If you’ve recently come to the UK, have limited right to be here, or are from the EU, you might not be able to claim support for housing. If you do, this may affect your application to the Home Office to live in the UK.
It’s a good idea to get advice on this before you make a claim. Citizens Advice has more information on how your immigration status can affect your benefits and help with housing. You can call them for free confidential advice and get referred to a specialist adviser if necessary.
