So you have a change of address with a legacy benefit in payment (ESA), so your claimant can continue on HB until such time as they are migrated over to UC. You are just doing a normal change in circs (coa).

The only time they would need to be signposted to UC for housing costs was if they were already in receipt of UC.

I hope that helps.
