  1. Yes, outside London too. In fact I'd guess that most (if not all) couples with 3 children in the private or social rented sector that are on benefits and not exempt from the cap will be affected to some extent. Certainly the modelling I have done points in that direction. Also, anyone who lives outside London that was already subject to a cap at £26k has lost a further £6k per annum. This is a big change and calls into question the viability of providing 3 bedroom rented accommodation to families. The SPeye blog has been talking about this for a long time and is worth a read if this an area

  9. Its been three years since I was involved in this area of work so what I am about to say may now be outdated but the Govt used to only only pay interest on the first £100k borrowed and definitely not pay interest on rolled up credit card debts and car loans. Thorough checks are undertaken on amounts borrowed and proofs of expenditure required. If the house was purchased after October 1995 then any help offered would only start from the 39th week of a claim. Thats right, no help for 9 months! The assumption made by the Govt is that most responsible citizens of the UK would have a Mortgage Pr
