If you are paying off a mortgage and you are on remand, you may be able to get help with your repayments. You'll only get help towards the interest on your mortgage and you'll only get help for a certain amount of time.
Depending on the length of your sentence and the type of housing that you have, you may want to try holding onto your home. There is a limit to the amount of time that you'll get benefits to help pay your rent or mortgage interest.
In certain circumstances, keeping your home may not be the best option for you. If you're serving a long sentence, you can't afford to keep paying your housing costs or you're unable to return home because of a conflict, you might have to think about giving up your home.
