THE ISSUE - Government want to turn this welfare benefit into a repayable loan!!
They also intend to add interest and admin fees.
To ensure they get their benefit monies back - they will place their name - in the form of a CHARGE on the sick / disabled / unemployed / person's house deeds and persons will not be able to move or sell until that 'loan' - that 'Charge' is paid back, in full, with interest accrued and fees. (Save any variants in the plan on moving with permissions)!
