A2/2018 now out.

A bit mind-boggling. Amongst other things

"27. Where the claimant has moved out of the LA area triggering the UC claim, the additional 2 weeks will be paid direct to the claimant from the LA which paid HB until the change occurred. The LA will need to contact the claimant for their payment details if HB was previously paid to the landlord."

So does that mean the LA the claimant is moving from has to establish what the eligible rent is at the new property in a different LA area where the claimant is moving to?
