Normally I ask for a month’s rent in advance (RIA). Most of my tenants are benefit tenants and claiming UC but if they come through the LA route the Council have always paid the first months RIA.
What if I up this is two or even three months RIA? To try and always cover myself for the situation where I have (on many occasions) found myself in where there have been delays in direct rent payments to me/tenant delays in making sure all the info gets to UC so direct payments are made asap, I’m wondering if this is a solution as the LA pay this to me direct on behalf of the tenant.
Does this have any implication though on issuing S21 or S8’s that may possible follow if the need arises?
