Hi Andrew

See earlier thread Home > Forums > Exempt and Temporary Accommodation > The making of a housing benefit millionaire

The City of Bradford MDC continues not to pay MySpace, we have 2 appeal processes at FTT covering 27 appeals on the grounds that MySpace do not provide care, support or supervision, 9(1)(1) and in the alternative a rent restriction.

I’ve been in contact with 2 other LA’s for a few months who are also at Tribunal with MySpace cases and we are working together to strengthen our cases. Happy to share info/evidence if you provide contact details.

What I find particularly interesting in this new Judgement is MySpace confirm that that they have misclaimed that they provide Specialist Supported Accommodation and there are potentially 1800 cases this applies to. So if your an LA who accepted this from them I suggest you are entitled to revisit the rent you based HB on and any over overpayments created would be recoverable.
