Reply To: 53 week rent year – DHP


Hi, my mind is blown – maybe it’s my age! Please can you help me explain this to my client as I can’t get it through my head!

I have a customer – she is being charged rent this year from 1.4.24 to 6.4.25 – 53 weeks in total.
She has 4 rent free weeks, so over this next rent year she is expected to pay £125.02 49 times, a total amount of £6127.45

Her UC housing costs are being paid monthly at £500.20 – UCHC calculated as £125.05 per week x 48 weeks / 12 months – she will receive 12 payments over the year totalling £6002.40

According to this calculation – she is underpaid by 1 week.
