    Hi

    Some of the properties in my area were flood affected. So some tenants were decanted to other tenancies where they claimed HB while some went to live with family or friends.

    They are due to return shortly, so before these cases arise, should the tenants who didn’t move to another tenancy and so ended their HB claim, be allowed to claim HB on their return or as I suspect, should they be advised to claim through UC?

    – I assume you allowed then to keep the HB open for temp absence due to essential repairs? Or did their rent liability end at the flooded address? (reg 7 (4) working age regs

    Assuming the landlords stopped charging them rent, then they cant make a new claim for HB unless they are pensioners or in supported exempt accommodation.
