    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?

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