Information for landlords

A new benefit called Universal credit (UC) is being introduced to replace a range of benefits and tax credits for people of working age. 

An information booklet (to follow) has been created to help landlords understand the changes and how they can help and prepare their tenants for direct payments 

It also explains what budgeting and payment support is available for tenants who may need help moving to the new system.  This includes Alternative Payment Arrangements if tenants are finding it hard to manage the Universal Credit payment.
