Housing Benefit 4 weekly or monthly payment confusionMake Text Bigger
Just had a quick question about how Housing Benefit is paid. I have two properties rented to the London Borough of Enfield at the 4 bed LHA rate.
What I don’t understand is why for one property they pay me at the end of each month (i.e 12 payments per year) but the other property they’ve insisted on paying me every 4 weeks (so I end up with 13 payments per year).
I realise that annually it amounts to the same figure but I’d much prefer if both were paid at the end of each month. The council are being particularly difficult about this but I just wondered if anyone knows how the council decide on how they pay ?
