Housing Benefit payments

Housing Benefit is normally paid every four weeks in arrears.

We may pay Housing Benefit directly to you if your tenant is classed as vulnerable.

If your tenant is more than 8 weeks in arrears you can ask us to pay until the arrears fall under 8 weeks. To make this request you can email us. Please ensure that you include any relevant information to support the request.

We can only discuss a tenant's housing benefit with you if they have given us permission to do so. This can be done by completing this form:
