I have a long standing Housing Benefits tenant who I always have had direct payment for as there is a history of drink, drugs and spells in HMP. I received direct payment (by HB ) as normal and expected for period 13 April- 19th May.
When the rent was not forthcoming for 11 May – 19 June period I call tenant. He has just come out of prison, and was told he had to full in a UC claim. He did so then got the first lot of money sent direct to him (for rent 16 April – 15 May). He pays the bills then blows the rest. I explain that part of that was for actual rent. No response!
I immediately go on line to fill in a new style UC47 for direct payments. I get a call back from DWP this is all arranged so next payment 16 May – 15 June will be paid on 2 July as this is his BAP period.
What happens to the rent due for the period 11 May – 16 May?
Do I try and get a third party deduction from DWP even though its not two months worth of arrears (and unlikely now as I get direct payments anyway)?
Will HB tray to make me pay back his last rent payment to me as the DWP have clearly paid again (to him) for the same period?
Why do I have to wait till the BAP payment date of 2nd July for rent period 16 May – 15 June?
I Tried to call new third party payments line direct, but it purposely cuts you off.
