I had a call from the Probation Service yesterday asking if I had any objection to my tenant returning to the property after his release.
I had no idea he had even gone to prison! Apparently he was taken into custody mid Feb and due for release at the end of March. The PS stated that Housing Benefit continues to be paid if a tenant is put away up to 3 months.
I has sent him and the council a letter stating a rent increase will be applicable from 1st April on his flat. Clearly he didn’t get this, but the Council were aware.
My question is –
1. Can the Council agree this rent increase (still under the LHA rate) before he gets out, or will he have to progress this on his release?
2. Will this situation force a trigger of him having to move to UC rather than a continuation of HB? It is only a rent increase of £50 a month. No other changes whatsoever.
Just want to understand the situation before I call the Council.
