What about non-dependants?
If you claim Housing Benefit and/or Council Tax Reduction and share your property with someone who isn't part of your family (e.g. a boarder or a sub-tenant) who is not part of our household then your entitlement may be reduced.
This is because they are expected to contribute towards your rent and/or Council Tax. The amount of reduction is based on their level of income.
