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


In response to Sean’s last comment, I think the problem there is that para (2A) does not apply if entitlement ends … you go to paras (8) and (9). And yet if you apply the change from the following Monday under paras (8) and (9), by that time the new liability has already started so entitlement wouldn’t end after all. That’s the circularity I was talking about earlier. That’s why I have been persuaded that the only coherent way to deal with this is to look at entitlement by the whole week, albeit sometimes based on an amount of rent that adds up to less than a whole week [but then again Reg 7(7) comes to the rescue with Reg 79(9)]
