Backdated Housing Benefit decision over 4 years ago!

I've not received an invoice from the council relating to this, and if they do send one then I will appeal it. The tenant was evicted in 2015 for rent arrears and smashing up the flat. I presume that the Council will now be deducting the alleged overpayments from the tenant's ongoing Housing Benefit, so his current landlord will suffer the consequences of the Council's backdated decision. - Definitely not a great advert for landlords to accept Housing Benefit tenants!...

Hi Ben Smith

I have just answered an identical question sent to me on Linked In under the name of William Swain. Is this your alias, or some person connected with you, or is this some sort of con? It all seems very suspicious. I advised you that in relation to tax matters you would be better off speaking to Mark Alexander as I am not an expert in tax so I am unable to advise on this....

It appears that the minimum donation possible via the Just Giving website is £2.00, so I have amended the post on the Just Giving site accordingly: Read More

Reply to the comment left by Larry Sweeney at 24/11/2018 - 09:28Thank you Larry for your generous offer. Here is the post about this project to actually house the homeless (provide shelter and support), and the link to the Just Giving website where people can make a donation (they can do this anonymously if they wish).
The £2.00 Homelessness Challenge
With Shelter currently estimating over 320,000 homeless people in the UK, it is no wonder that we are receiving an increase in the number of people being referred to our supported accommodation, and by a wider range of statutory and voluntary organisations.
Our main limiting factor is lack of funding for our hostel Support Workers, but we operate very efficiently and can provide 2 hours of personal support for just £30.00 per resident per week. The accommodation is funded, it is the support that we need to raise funding for.
This is by far the most cost effective way of helping people out of homelessness, so we have now launched an appeal on the Just Giving website asking people to donate £2.00 towards helping the homeless. Please donate and share the appeal and encourage all your social media friends and contacts to also donate and share. Take a look at our Just Giving page for more details: Read More
