Housing Benefit for landlords

Due to Government rules on benefits we must usually make Housing Benefit payments direct to the tenant. You will need to speak to tenants to arrange rent payments.

Tenants may not receive enough benefit to pay their rent in full. Tenants are responsible to pay the difference.

We are restricted in what information we can share with you without the tenant's written authorisation, even if payments are being made direct to you or your agent.
