Many of us have tenants who receive housing benefit, even though HB is being slowly being replaced by universal credit.
I’ve published a free guide explaining in plain English the rules that councils *should* apply when deciding whether to pay private landlords directly.
The guide is free and written in plain English, and can be downloaded here >> https://markprichard.co.uk/content/downloads/Direct-payments-of-HB-to-private-landlords-a-guide-for-tenants-by-Mark-Prichard.pdf
While the guide is written for HB claimants it’s just as useful if you’re a private landlord and would prefer to receive the benefit directly.
The guide will be useful if you need to:
• request direct payments
• request a decision in writing the decision (the regulations say you should be notified!)
• request reasons for a negative decision
• appeal a negative decision
• submit a formal complaint (e.g. about a delay in responding/making a decision, or not correctly applying the regulations)
