I have now found a Housing Benefit tenant and done all the credit checks/ references etc and all is good. They are currently receiving HB in another London borough, but will be moving to my properties London borough so wanted I wanted to know if anyone could briefly outline the procedure I would need to take to get them into my property?
So for example do I give them a post dated AST and they then go to HB in my area and claim the HB or should they do the HB form online? Or would it be better for me to go with them to HB offices to do this so that I can see everything with my own eyes?
The parts I am worried about are what if I give them an AST and the HB claim is lower than the expected rental for my property, what if the claim has arrears or claw backs they never knew or told me about? Basically what is the best procedure and series of steps in my situation to protect me!
Any help would be greatly appreciated :o)
