Does anyone know for sure if Universal Credit (UC) are obligated to take on board information given to them by a Local Council (LC) in regard to a client?
I deal with challenging tenants and the LC knows this well. They ‘help’ the LL as best they can BUT they know themselves the tenant can change to receiving their rent direct at the drop of a hat.
I always set up a direct Landlord payment (online UC47) highlighting in the main the first tier reasons why this is the case. Direct payment to Landlord is written in the Tenancy Contract that this is expected also.
Would a letter from the LC who know the client’s background and are happy to state they think the Landlord should be paid directly for the term of the tenancy (stating it is in the clients best interests) to attach to the claim be looked at in light of further evidence why the tenant should NOT ever be paid directly?
I keep getting shafted by UC who are agreeing to pay the tenant direct as and when they ask for a direct payment even though I have told them there are known drug addicts/drinkers etc.
Just had another request from LC to house another such client. Total Landlord ar$e covering is becoming key so any advice is welcome.
