I house lots of tenants on benefits, where payments come to me as they are vulnerable tenants
The tenants support workers write the letters to the benefits team and thats enough
Under these circumstances, would payments continue to come to me/ the landlord?
If so, how would they split the Universal Credit, as its an all in one?
Will this universal credit encompass all the benefits seperately? ie. housing benefit + job seekers allowance?
This would have to be the case, for them to have a system to switch benefit payments to the landlord
Also, would the present council's benefit team lose control of the housing benefit party? I've heard the dwp will be in charge of the UC - if so, what purpose would the council benefit team have if any?
