Your housing documents are fine, provided it won't be overcrowded.
For finance, 6-month bank statement. You can declare you get benefits but it's not an absolute requirements. They just want to know you can afford to sponsor your mother from your own resources, and not resorting to public funds (i.e. claiming extra benefits on top of what you get in your own right).
