Reply To: Liability to Pay Rent HB or UC Housing Costs


no – a period where the rent is waived for decorating/ repairs is still treated as being liable for rent ( for up to 8 weeks i think) .

It appears the customer may be eligible for the overlap on the old property if she had to giove notice at that property.

When did you find out all this – in anyregard, if you found out after 1 jan, its a closed period supersession an HB can continie
But id be looking to make it continuous for the reasons stated above
