answer text <p>Whether mixed-aged couples can claim council tax support depends on a range of factors including the age of a claimant, the benefits they and/or their partner receive, and the design of local schemes. The changes to pension credit due to take effect from 15 May 2019 may mean some households are no longer eligible for the pensioner element of council tax support schemes, but may be eligible for local working-age schemes.</p> more like this

answer text <p>In England, the Regulator of Social Housing requires registered providers to maintain their homes to the Decent Homes Standard. That includes a requirement to provide reasonably modern facilities and services. The Standard does not require social landlords to provide essential household items such as households goods or furnishings.</p><p>Where people need it, the Government provides a strong safety net through the welfare system for those who need extra support, including a system of hardship payments and benefit advances. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) may also be able to offer support for those that need help with the costs of intermittent expenses that are considered difficult to budget for, including furniture. For those on Universal Credit, budgeting advances provide access to interest free payments for one-off items. For those on other DWP means-tested benefits interest free budgeting loans are available.</p><p> </p> more like this

My Department is supporting Design Network in a series of engagements with local authority officers and councillors around the country to determine the barriers to delivering quality in their areas. The permitted development right for office to residential conversions allows change of use but not external works.

answer text <p>We know that security of tenure is a concern for many in the private rented sector. That is why we have announced that the government will end so-called ‘no fault’ evictions by abolishing Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988. The government will shortly launch a new consultation on proposals to remove the ability of landlords to use ‘no fault’ evictions under Section 21 of the Housing Act 1988.</p><p>The government’s proposed measures will provide greater certainty for tenants and make the housing market fit for the 21st century. This will provide support to all tenants, including older renters, giving them the security and stability they need to make a place truly feel like home without the fear of being evicted at a moments’ notice.</p><p> </p> more like this
