I read the following article last week and wanted to share it and hear your views.universal credit

The former Welfare Minister Lord Freud has identified that one in four low income tenants are in rent arrears under the Universal Credit Scheme as a result of DWP administrative problems:

Increasingly, over the last few months we have received a number of referrals from landlords who all seem to be experiencing the same issue – NOT RECIEVING THE RENT.

CLS have been recording this information and hope to share with DWP and Government Ministers in the near future as we feel more needs to be done to increase landlords confidence in the system and to safe guard tenancies.

Thanks. No, I haven't but I can afford to hang on in there and wait to see what happens. In my retirement I like learning about things, supposedly keeping my brain from addling.

It does, however, make me feel for those with lots of UC or benefit tenants, and for the tenants themselves. A total shambles, motivated by spite and enacted by incompetents.
