Your Homes Newcastle under-occupation rent top-ups

Published: Thursday 10 January 2019

Are you looking for a new home but worried about how having a spare room could affect your benefits?

 

If you’re interested in one of Your Homes Newcastle’s available properties but put off by the under-occupation charge, YHN might be able to help you access rent top-ups that will cover the cost of the extra bedroom.

 

To be eligible for these rent top-ups, you must sign up for a property that has one bedroom more than you need and be actively looking for work. 

 

If approved, you will receive the top-ups until you find a job up to a maximum of twelve months.  When your top-up ends, you will have to pay the extra rent yourself but you will be referred to Your Homes Newcastle’s advice and support service to help you prepare for this.

 

Interested? 

 

Contact Your Homes Newcastle’s Housing Options team on 0191 277 2020 to find out more.
