Universal Credit for Lettings

 
WHO IS THIS FOR:

This course is for anyone involved in allocations, successions, transfers and mutual exchanges

 

AIMS:

This course covers the Universal Credit essentials concentrating on the key issues and problems associated with moving home and taking on a tenancy.

They will be able to offer accurate advice to new tenants to help minimise the impact of claiming UC on the rent account and to help claimants maximise their entitlement thereby enabling them to sustain their tenancy

  • Gain an understanding of who does or doesn't have to claim UC when moving home
