My tenant claims housing benefit and has been consistently late with her payments. She is on a 1 year AST expiring 31.12.10 and I have served a section 21b as standard. She tends to pay in dribs and drabs ie 25 here 120 there. At present she is 155 overdue from 01.06.10 and obviously 01.07.10 is rent day again. She has advised me she has asked the council to start paying me directly. My question is: Because she stills owes some of the rent from 01.06.10 and this constitutes a partial payment if no rent is paid on 01.07.10 will this make her 8 weeks overdue as the 01.06.10 is only partially paid. Or does the fact that she has made a partial payment constitute payment? I ask because I want to contact the council and advise the rent is 8 weeks late so as to ensure the benefit comes directly to me henceforth and bot just take her word for it.

Thanks in advance RLA.
