Information for private landlords about Housing Benefit
Benefit direct to Landlord
Where direct payment is made to the Landlord, a letter confirming the start date of the claim and the amount payable will be sent to you.
All personal details of the tenant's claim are confidential and cannot be used for any purpose other than assessing Benefit unless the tenant agrees in writing to this. Payment can be made directly into your bank account by BAC's.
To request payment by BAC's please complete the separate leaflet, BAC's for Landlords.
Payment can alternatively be paid by closed cheque.
