Reply To: Universal Credit Roll Out – the consequences


The example given in annexe 1 is a bit patronising. 

'The total stream of UC payments equals the total stream of rent liabilities'.  

I know it is talking about an exisiting UC claimant moving to a new property, but a new UC claimant in an existing property is going to have 7 waiting days, so their UC payments aren't going to meet their rent liability in full. 

'The payment non-compliance impact is far more substantial'. 

Isn't that what landlords are most concerned about? Does this letter do anything to address this?
