Can I report this to the police for fraud as UC might not do anything?

Absolute disgrace of the Dwp UC office staff. It is clear maladministration & practice. A tenant not paying his rent for more than 2 months grant the direct payment to the landlord although even that is unfair to allow them to pocket 2 months of the UC housing cost to start with. In my opinion the tenant took 10 months of UC housing cost and not paid it, kept it for himself for other use claiming it is for housing cost is fraud. And both the UC office & police should recognise it as such and hold those tenant's accountable for criminal charges. This will be another thing I will try to add to the list of maladministration from the UC office to ask for addressing...... Read More

I would consider a Watch Group Chris if others you mentioned would liaise to initiate a group. In the meanwhile please call continue to contact the UC regional partnership manager to address the levels of maladministration & malpractices.... Read More

Hi Bill, thanks for the response. I agree with what you've wrote. I have still not had any further response from the UC regional partnership manager. We must collectively continue our efforts to campaign for changes for better. We are housing providers and should be treated much better and coherently. As it stands the Dwp UC administration is getting away with 'administrative riots'.... Read More

Beware of useless boiler maintenance contracts?

I've had numerous British Gas Homecare plans and still do. They are not saints either. Normally when a part is gone like the expansion vessel, they typically 'pump it up or inflate it again' then leave. That is prolonging the problem making it worse than really resolving it. It is like a puncture in a tyre and all they are doing is inflate it for it to be leaking again. Some of their engineers also offered to do homers jobs on site quoting against their own British Gas quotes which is not allowed. What they want is us to pay the monthly cover fee and once we leave the the plan, the problem is passed on and they've made their money. The experience of the flue is just like you say bad service which i find in many service sector including Utility companies, the Dwp etc. The list goes on...... Read More

That is a rather nice problem to have. Most of us including myself are underpaid. As far as I know if they made an error on their end with no involvement of you or your tenant by overpayment, it is not recoverable. That is the case for the Lha too. But of course one may choose to return it if there is not arrears to offset.... Read More
