DWP aren’t listening to Landlords, but if you contact your MP, they may listen to you. Benefit Landlords, keep complaining, there must be someone intelligent within DWP to finally see sense. This homelessness can be reduced.
TWO years to get a complaint looked at where the Landlord has ZERO rent coming in is unacceptable & why Landlords aren’t taking Benefit tenants, please listen to this Shelter, stop going after the Landlord that just wants to pay his mortgage.
It costs DWP over £200,000 a MONTH for their complaints section-For what? Nothing gets solved except more homeless.
Letter below which has taken two years + to resolve. And still no financial redress, just a big loss. DWP say sorry & can carry on doing exactly the same.
ICE has upheld my part about the references where we don’t know which tenant the money in the bank is for. So I’ve won that complaint, but still, DWP do it, I really don’t understand how ICE has upheld the complaint then if any human being out there can enlighten me.
This particular tenant was sanctioned, ZERO income to buy food, gas, electric, but DWP STILL sent her the rent money Housing Element-What’s she gonna’ do if no food in the cupboard? Not Rocket science is it.
At the rate we are going, every tenant that goes on to UC, UC gets EVERY SINGLE ONE wrong, makes a mistake, quite often catastrophic, very rare it’s a minor mistake.
All complaints & A LOT of homeless would cease if UC spoke to us.
