3.1 Introduction


The legislation makes provision for assistance with repairs or instalment relief, in cases where borrowers are financially incapable of effecting work for the purpose of keeping the property in good order and repair, or maintaining normal monthly instalments.  Further details are contained in Entitlement General Orders Chapters 4-7.

One of the criteria specified in s.20 and s.23 for the issue of certificates of entitlement for widow/widower advances and instalment relief is that the applicant is suffering financial hardship - [please see Entitlement GO's Chapter 6].
