Do you know how many leaseholders in London are retired or unemployed? What help do they receive in paying their housing costs if they are in receipt of Universal Credit or Income Support or Job Seekers Allowance?

The GLA does not hold any information on the number of leaseholders in London who are retired or unemployed.

Some leaseholders may receive some financial assistance through the benefits system, but the amount would depend on the circumstances of each individual or household and the GLA does not hold any information on the total or average amount received.
