I think it would be unlawful to do so. Such arrangements are agreed irrespective of the claimant whereas the regs will only allow individual decisions to pay the landlord.

What if the claimant appeals? What does the LA do? Admit it ignored the law for its own reasons?

I am not saying I agree with the policy as I can understand the impact on homeless provision.
