    Filling in her SFE application, and my friend has come across the question where will she be living, with something like 'own home' and 'with parents' as options.

    She lives with her parents and will be continuing to do so ... but they all own a third of the house. So what is she filling in for this question?

    She'd rather not wait much longer - needs the money soon as possible, really.

    Any idea on which one seems most reasonable?

    No idea. And if she fills in the wrong thing and they find out it's wrong, it's going to sound like she lied to get more money. Or else she isn't going to get as much as she deserves. They obviously aren't going to process the application tonight, so it's probably worth waiting, ringing them and definitely getting it right.

    is there a shared house option, her situation isnt really any different to if she moved in to a house with her friends or something, as in they are all equally responsible, if she puts living with parents they will assume that she is remaining dependent on them (ie no rent, no bills, no food, ect) and will need less money whereas if she owns her part of the house then she is just as responsible and should get the money for them (whether or not she is actually paying), but basically as others have said just call

    This is what happens when you think you'll be clever and beat the taxman and/or local authority.

    How does that even make sense?

    On balance, if they all on a third, would be 67/33 with parents, so should class as With Parents.

    This is usually done by people who think they are beating the local authority's rules about assets when/or if it is necessary for someone to go into care OR by someone who thinks they can subvert the inheritance tax rules.

    They actually won the money (all of them entered the competition), was allocated a third each ... then decided to pool it together to buy this house. Don't assume things before you know the whole story.
