Hello there, may I help you?
Hi having read your information, this housing inspector is talking rubbish, you can still claim benefits as a lone parent if somone stays over one night a week, I know you are in Ireland but in the uk (and I am sure its the same) If you have somone staying with you three nights or more week then they are classed as cohabiting and you would lose your benefits. If push come to shove here and they tell you you are going to lose benefits say it was a one off or dont tell them. It sounds madness that you cant have somone to stay even for a night, I honestly dont believe that and think she may have been strying to scare you into admitting you had somone there more than that. Stay srtong here and stand your ground, you are not abusing the system and only claiming what you are entitled to so dont back down here, flight for what you are entitled to.
Please message me if I can help more, please accept if you are happy with my answer.
Hi also forgot to say the person staying is not allowed to be seen to be moving there belonging into you home.
