UC wont pay for 2 homes in these circumstances. ( https://www.entitledto.co.uk/help/liability-for-rent-on-two-homes-universal-credit )

So if she is genuinely liable for rent at the property shes not gtting the Hosung elemet at, you can consider a DHP – but only up to the Housing element and there has to be a shortfall – so if UC are covering her full rent and there is no income taper/ benefit cap/ rent restriction – theres nothing to make a dhop up from.

Also, Im a bit ????? that the landlord is able to charge rent for a property that needs such urgent repairs…
