SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED SUPPLEMENTARY WELFARE ALLOWANCE) (AMENDMENT) (NO. 2) (RENT AND MORTGAGE SUPPLEMENT) REGULATIONS 2012
(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)
These Regulations amend the conditions applying to the Rent and Mortgage Interest Supplement schemes payable under the Supplementary Welfare Allowance scheme by—
- providing that it is a requirement for an applicant for the rent supplement to apply to a housing authority for a social housing assessment, on being required to do so by a designated officer, and
- removing the condition applying to the mortgage interest supplement scheme which provides that the supplement will be discontinued where the property is offered for sale.
