Reply To: Claimants in caravans


Sorry I forgot tpo follow that up. I have asked the LA concerned and DWP whether they mind me pasting the DWP advice and my analysis of it.

I understand they are proposing to prescribe local authority caravan sites as cases where rent rebate falls to be paid as rent allowance. I think that will get round the technical problem of having two different ways to calculate the claimant’s eligible rent.

Hopefully have more details for you later.

No it wasn’t a London Borough beginning with W.
