Rent for a property
If the claimant owns a home other than the one they live in
, any rent received from it is treated as capital - and increases its capital value - rather than as income.
Universal Credit Reg 72 (3). "Where a person's capital is treated as yielding income, any actual income derived from that capital, for example rental, interest or dividends, is to be treated as part of the person's capital from the day it is due to be paid to the person. " And no expenses involved in renting out the property are disregarded - see FOI 3933
