The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has published updated guidance for landlords with tenants in receipt of Universal Credit.
The information is designed to help understand what they can do to help their tenants prepare for their move to the single Universal Credit benefit payment and make rental payments directly to their landlord themselves.
It also explains what support is available for tenants who may need help moving to the new system.
Information on Alternative Payment Arrangements can be found here.
Guidance to service charges for landlords can be found here.
If a tenant is having difficulty paying their rent, fill in the UC47 form to request payment of rent from a tenant’s Universal Credit.
