Reply To: A18 2005 & A8 2006 Council Tenant Change of Address


Is this not a simple matter of entitlement continuing to the end of the week because the business of getting HB only for the days in occupation is to do with getting a pro-rata payment of the weekly rent, not with end of HB entitlement? HB is a weekly benefit so entitlement itself only ends at the end of the week even if the claimant is only paid say 3/7 of it because moves out on the Wednesday???? Therefore end of entitlement and new claim for new address does not come into this particular scenario at all?
Please tell me if I’m right or barking up the wrong tree entirely? (Maybe Peter Barker would like to comment- no pun intended 😆 ).
