Universal Credit - Tips and Advice for landlords

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has produced a top tips guide for landlords who have tenants who claim Universal Credit.

Universal Credit is a new type of financial support that is replacing six working age means-tested benefits, including Housing Benefit. It impacts tenants in all housing sectors including the private rented sector.

Universal Credit is being delivered by the DWP, and will be introduced in stages across the UK by postcode area.

The top tips Guide is available here.

Alongside this, a page containing useful information for landlords can be accessed here:
