What to do if you have not received the Housing Benefit
Claims can be delayed if there is a mistake on the form or we don’t get the evidence we need. Your tenant should claim online, straight away even if they can't immediately provide all the evidence we ask for.
If you haven't received a payment after eight weeks contact us in writing online before you take action against the tenant. We will check what has happened and pay their Housing Benefit as soon as possible.
If you tell us your tenant owes you eight weeks rent or more and they do not dispute this, we will make the payments direct to you. Contact us online make the request in writing.
