An alternative argument….

In trying to unscramble this, I may have missed something. But, here goes anyway….

In the circumstances described, there doesn’t appear to be any break in entitlement. Therefore, why is a new claim needed?

Why no break? If liability ends midweek for address “A”, HB [u:830b4b62c5]entitlement[/u:830b4b62c5] still runs to the Sunday. The “part week calc” for rent is only for the purpose of assessing the amount of rent to be used for that benefit week – HB is still for the whole week. If that is correct, HB is continuous and it is just a change of circs.
