    We have an elderly claimant who was due to move into a HA property but ended up in hospital. The decision has now been made that she will not be moving in.

    As a result she had a 4 week tenancy but never moved in.

    Can we give her a DHP? My feeling is no.

    Any advice would be fantastic.

    Thank you


    It depends on whether or not you decide that the claimant is eligible for HB for that period. If she is eligible then DHP can be awarded. If you decide that she is not eligible then you can’t.
