With talks in the media of DWP claiming that they plan to make the process for direct payments to Landlord’s easier.
On 11th April 2017 DWP released a new UC47 Alternative Payment Arrangement application forms; enabling landlords to apply for direct payments.
On both the secure and non-secure forms landlords can also apply for repayment of outstanding rental arrears.
DWP have stated that the process is a lot easier as landlords are now given the option to send the form once completed via email using the improved UC47 Non-Secure Alternative Payment Arrangement, there is still the option to send the UC47 Secure form by post.
Both forms have an option to include details of the arrears and on the secure form there is a text box for landlords to give all of their reasons for their request, for example alcohol and or drug dependency, previous rent arrears or difficulties in managing finances.
At the end of the form Landlords have to sign a disclaimer confirming that they are responsible for informing the DWP of any changes in circumstances.
