Housing Benefit can pay for part of or all of a tenants rent depending on the local housing area. How much they get depends on income, local housing area and circumstances.
Since 2013, Housing Benefit, Income Support, income-related Employment and Support Allowance and income-related Jobseekers Allowance have been gradually replaced by a new benefit called Universal Credit which can include amounts to help with rent or a mortgage.
If set up correctly, Housing Benefit is a reliable and consistent method of paying rent for both tenant and landlord. CLS can advise on all aspects of Housing Benefit and we offer a range of services to help you deal with issues when they arise.Contact Us
