Housing Systems: Combating poverty and sustaining tenancies.
Standard Letters: Housing Benefit
Please note:
  • Some of our standard letters are for claimants to use, whereas some are to be signed and sent by the landlord on headed paper. 
  • To use a Standard Letter download it and replace the sections in red with the appropriate information.
  • Note that some letters contain alternative sections depending on the circumstances.
  • Wherever the letter asks for more information to be supplied ensure that as much information is given as possible.
  • It is best not to include the code and heading!
  • You can save the letters into your own folder but we advise against this as you might use a letter that has been replaced with a more up-to-date version, when legislation has changed. 
  • You can write on behalf of a claimant, with their written authorisation, the advantage being  that the reply will be sent to you, but note that the HB Office can refuse to accept their authorisation for you to act on a claimant's behalf.
