Hiya, I am confused from the information I have been given by my clerks regarding the 8000 you can apply for to contribute to housing. Does the house have to be 50 miles from your parent unit, and what exactly are the criteria for applying? For example, if you were to buy a live aboard boat which you had obtained a mortgage for, could you still apply for the money, or does it have to be a house with a mortgage. Sorry to sound a little unsure but I cant get a straight answer from anywhere! Many thanks!
