Please kindly sign my petition to change the rules for the Housing element part of universal credit.

I am a social landlord who is being affected by the poorly thought out rules for the housing element part of universal credit.
The system was fine under the local councils but so far Universal credit has cost me over 30 weeks in unpaid rent.
Problems for over a year plus now not acceptable!

Rules that need to be changed ASAP:
1/ Only one office to contact – every time you call you get through to a different centre.
There is no hierarchy chain so you don’t get far and there is no accountability.
2/ Speed up call waiting times – 20-30 minutes is too much.
3/ Allow landlords to have the option of being paid directly as standard if they require it.
4/ One journal entry giving landlord permission to access information rather then new journal every time as we don’t always live close by.

14 months is ridiculous!
Universal credit are a shambles and it seems to be another way to get at landlords to make our lives more difficult then need be.
I have three different email addresses that I send APA requests to - one which say it will respond to urgent issues within 3 days but no response to date other then acknowledgement that they have received my email. I also have three different contact numbers for them too.
Not chain of command at UC - completely frustrated by their lack of response on any level.

I can put it on the HMO and UK Property Traders FB pages if you like - just say the word. I'm sure others can suggest additional ones.

Signed.

Up to 215 so far.

We are going to have to do a lot better than that unfortunately.

I have tried several times to sign but never get an email to complete this. The paranoid part of me wonders if the government are trying to block it........
