Will rent increase trigger UC application?Make Text Bigger
I haven’t increased the rent on a flat in over 7 years as there have been no issues with the tenant and he is very settled.
However, to be in line with flats in the rest of the block I’m going to have to increase the rent a little (£50 a month) but it will still be under the one bed LHA rate for the area.
The tenant is receiving full Housing Benefit for the rent still so do I assume its a case of just sending him details/notice of such as he notifies the Council and its all sorted, or will this be the (dreaded) situation of a change in circumstance now triggering a Universal Credit application?
