Reply To: Payment on Two Homes


Julian, that was an interesting commisioner’s decision. I think I agree to the decision. The claimant in the case I am dealing with will therefore not be entitled to payment on two homes for the period she requested ie 13/03/06 – 09/04/06. We can pay her housing benefit from 06/04/06 for her new address as this is the date she moved into that property and for the previous address h/b can be paid from 13/03/06 to 05/04/06.

I have not had any proof that the delay was due to disability adaptation. I agree with Panda that overlapping liability will not apply since the claimant hadn’t moved to the new property.

Thanks Guys for the contribution.
