Universal Credit deficit on rent?

I have had a tenant move out of a property recently and because it was 2 weeks into the month I was told that I would not get the rental payment.

The Universal Credit team told me that if it had been 3.5 weeks into to the month I probably would of got the rent.

Surly this cannot be correct?

Has any one else had this problem and can let me know.

Many thanks

To my knowledge, it can never be the case that DWP owes you the rent, as your contract is with the now ex-tenant. Perhaps an expert on here could confirm this (or not)?

This Universal Credit UC situation is diabolical & gonna' get worse.
I've been a victim of UC's ridiculous part monthly rules that Sherrelle at Caridon explains. If they get a snippet of wages 4 weeks ago, that was just within this monthly period, 4 weeks later, u ain't getting any rent? What? Someone somewhere, lots of landlords need to challenge & change this.
I know Housing Benefit inside out & I use Sherrelle on all my new UC cases 'cause with the system at the moment, u just don't get anywhere. Kids answering the phone don't care about u, the mortgage, the tenants rent, as long as they adhere to DWP's rules of NEVER TALK TO THE LANDLORD EVER. AT ALL COSTS. If life is in danger, don't matter. Data protection must be adhered to. Even if tenant is there with him giving him permission, NO NO NO.
