Universal Credit payment period dates?Make Text Bigger
I have heard about landlords coming unstuck with UC payment periods for tenants. What’s the best way to ensure you get all your rent paid?
Start a tenancy a day before or on the day of payment period date, or during it?
I have already found out to my cost that UC won’t backdate any rent genuinely owed so want to avoid this again.
Also, can UC actually change a payment period date if an existing tenant has to make an amendment to the address of an existing claim?
I have a tenant who wants to move from a one bed to a two bed in the same block. Would there payment period change in light of this or continue as is?
Any advice would be very welcome.
