Submitting a managed payment to landlord
Once a landlord has applied for an APA managed payment to landlord using form UC47, we may need to contact them for further information about their request.
Please ensure that a contactable telephone number is included on the UC47 form. If we are unable to contact the landlord on the number provided we may be unable to progress the Alternative Payment Arrangement request. More information about direct rent payments
If you have sent a secure UC47 from a non–secure email address, you will receive a message advising that we are unable to process the information on it as it does not comply with general data protection rules. Your original email will then be deleted.
Please ensure that you follow the correct process using the correct UC47 form. More information about UC and a landlord request for a managed payment or rent arrears deduction.
