Universal Credit and rent arrears: advice for landlords

Universal Credit is a new benefit for working age people who are in or out of work.   For landlord guidance on Universal Credit and rented housing visit the Universal Credit pages on Gov.UK.

If your tenant has rent arrears, they possibly have other financial difficulties but they don’t know where to turn for help.  You can advise them to contact our welfare rights service for free and confidential advice on issues such as rent arrears and debt.
