Hello – we have had brief conversations with our Housing Solutions team over similiar. They’ve asked whether HB would be applicable because they, Housing Solutions, are considering that the accommodation is “temporary”. However, I’ve advised that unless they are specifically being placed under the relevant section(s) of the Housing (Wales) Act (Part II Homelessness) then they’re not going to be HB and they’re going to be UC housing costs.

I’ve not heard anything back from them since and so I’m assuming that they’ve gone back to the drawing board.

However, wherever you’re based, unless they’re being specifically placed under Part II of the Housing (Scotland) Act 1987, Part VII of the Housing Act 1996, or Part II of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 then they’re not going to be considered temporary accommodation.
