Housing Benefit application times
They have been told that (due to staff shortages) the application will not even be looked at for 3 months.
Is there a time limit specified in law by which the council must assess an application ?
Is there anything I can do to get them to speed up the process ?
I am concerned that they will look at the application in 3 months time, decide there is some small piece of paperwork missing and delay the proccess further..
