Responding to news that the Department for Work and Pensions has suspended until 10th May deductions from Universal Credit payments for rent arrears, service charge arrears and council tax arrears Ben Beadle, Chief Executive of the National Residential Landlords Association said:
“At such a difficult time the priority should be to do everything possible to prevent tenants getting into rent arrears in the first place by ensuring tenants are able to continue paying their rent in full.
“This means that the Government should ensure benefits cover the full cost of rents, end the five week wait for the first payment of Universal Credit and pay the housing element of the Credit directly to landlords.”
