Hi, We have recently been advised that all our tenants will be moving onto universal credit from June this year.
We have quite a few rental properties and most of our rent comes from housing benefit and is paid to ourselves as the tenants are over eight weeks in arrears.
Am I right in thinking that when the tenants move onto universal credit their rent allowance will be paid direct to them even thought they are already in arrears and that we would have to wait a further eight weeks until we can request payments to be sent direct to ourselves?
