Cash rich and nowhere to live

I was shocked to hear that a Romanian couple who are tenants of mine - who rent a room in a house in Lincoln, and who are now in arrears - are now receiving Universal Credit payments, because they "were not prepared to work for the minimum wage" there (of £8.30 I think) per hour, and with the proceeds have gone abroad on holiday for 3 weeks!...

Direct payment of Universal Credit to landlords - Online system being developed

I have had grief with 3 different councils, and in each case the rent being paid directly to me from the start 🙁 payment being stopped and/ or reduced) - ...either because the tenant's circumstances supposedly changed (no-one ever informed me in advance), or because it came to light that the tenant owed money to the council for their previous rental property.....there are clauses on the back of every rent statement I have received saying in effect that the council is entitled to claw back money from payments -even retrospectively after the tenant has left - if it comes to light that the tenant was not entitled to that amount! And the onus is always on the landlord to chase the tenant for any shortfall in payments! In their dreams!... Read More

Kicking Landlords is the National Pastime - Fergus Wilson

I would like to add that my experience with councils in different areas of the country, on more than 1 occasion - where the rent was being paid directly to me the landlord - resulted in deductions being made from the monthly amount paid to me, because the tenant turned out to be owing money for the rental of a previous property, or there had been some change in circumstance that I - and sometimes the tenant - was unaware of.
HB make it very clear that it is always the landlord's responsibility to claim back any rental shortfalls from their tenant....as if!!... Read More
