As some of you know, I’m pretty experienced in Housing Benefit …. well I think I am! ha ha.
The letter below basically explains my question to you all, as I was gonna’ ring the bank, but the robots in India won’t have a clue.
And then I thought Property118.com – There’s usually always someone on there with a useful opinion – some fools that haven’t got a clue, but some that do genuinely know or have had the experience.
Further to my letter/question below, would we then be able to change the address to one of my offices, so that I get bank statements, new cards etc.?
Can you confirm for me if it is perfectly legal for a tenant of mine to open a bank account to get her Housing Benefit paid into, to use this account just for Housing Benefit, & for the tenant to then give the Landlord the cash card & pin number for him to deduct the Housing benefit amounts ie. £470 every 4 weeks, out the bank machine in the wall?
If he has a full permission letter from the tenant saying he can use bank card & number to withdraw the Housing benefit money to pay the rent on the Landlords house she is living in?
She wishes to do this, as getting the Housing Benefit paid into her bank where all other direct debits are going out, is getting her into a mess & sometimes the Housing Benefit money is being used to pay other bills, so she is then short of funds to pay her rent.
So a separate bank account, where she has no access, as she also gets temptation to spend the money, would massively benefit her.
Any queries, please call me.
