Universal Credit - Form uc47
Hi I was wondering if anyone had had any success in getting LHA paid direct to them for on UC Tenants. Do they pay you the LHA portion directly? Has anyone had any luck in getting a deduction put on their other benefits to pay for the arrears?
We used to received nearly all of our LHA directly to us but as tenants moved over to UC these disappeared and predictably they have fallen in to arrears. I tried using the UC47 form recently for one tenant and was wondering if anybody had used it and how long it usually takes to process.
I'm just starting my 2nd one and have a few more to do over the next week. But wondered if it actually works before I launch in to the admin.
