This volume in the Help with Housing Costs series covers the rules for housing benefit for rent payments across the United Kingdom. It is designed to complement volume 1 which covers universal credit, council tax and rate rebates and certain matters common to housing benefit and universal credit, including appeal tribunals and the rules about migrants and recent arrivals.
Building on the strong reputation of its predecessor - Guide to Housing Benefit - for clear, impartial and accurate advice, it is designed for use by local councils, social landlords, advisers, tribunal members, housing professionals and tenants.
This new edition has been fully revised and updated to incorporate all the changes over the past year, including the April 2019 updating. It provides answers to some of the most frequent problems and issues and explains all the new rules starting from April.
