  • LHA single room rate payable to LL?

    Hi

    If LL applies to receive LHA direct as T is more than 8 weeks in arrears, will LL recieve the fixed single room rate or the actual rent, which is cheaper than the room rate?

    Thanks

    What does the tenant receive? Is part of the money she receives the £15 excess?

      I assume they get the single room rate which is slightly less than £15 more than the rent

        If arrears exist, the landlord will receive the whole of the tenant's Housing Benefit entitlement (including any top-up).

        If there are no arrears (or arrears are cleared) the landlord will only receive the actual rent. Any top-up will be awarded to the tenant.

            You might sere if local CaB has a list of agents taking HB recipients - and also council housing dept.

            Given what you describe her as (poor lady...) she should get some priority for the housing register in most councils (but they have different rules..). Certainly worth applying, it's free....

            You ain't the first.

            Please confirm property is registered at some other address & you've got email also from land registry if anyone tries something?

            Par for the course I'm afraid. I hope you changed the council tax and utilities to tenant name when she moved in, or you have screwed yourself. You can get the council to pay you direct once two months rent is unpaid.

          • tenant on housing benefit paid direct is rehoused but does not vacate immediately

            My tenant was given a council house after 8 month continuing tenancy under a section 21 notice. Housing benefit was being paid directly to me.
            Housing benefit was paid up to 4th Jun, but my tenants did not return the keys until 6th July.

            It is the tenant who has the liability for rent. Sue him.


            However there are sometimes circumstances when HB can be paid twice during change-over, but this one doesn;t sound promising & it requires the tenant to do stuff, fill in forms etc...

            Sue tenant: Then either...
