I have a HB tenant in arrears but without any explanation from her as to why (e.g. is it council witholding payment?, etc).

1) Can I insist that the council reveal the details as to the tenant's benefit payments (to find out whether they are paying her but she's not passing it on)
2) how many weeks does the tenant have to be in arrears before I insist that the council pay me directly (is it still 8 weeks?)
3)If I apply to the council to get them to pay me directly, what is the procedure and how long does it normally take before they start paying me directly.
4) I also understand she is sub-letting the house to someone else with 2 children - is this something I can use against her if I need to evict her ?
