Universal Credit - anyway of getting Rent Paid direct to LL?
"Universal Credit - anyway of getting Rent Paid direct to LL?
hi, We have two houses that we let out to tenants on housing benefit, income support etc. With the new universal credit coming in, I have read the rent will be paid direct to the tenants. I have had lots of problems with tenanats in the past where rent was paid directly to them. They just use up the money on everything, apart from the rent! Is there anyway I can have rent paid to me directly?
Thanks Aero"Reply ...
