    We received an application on Wed 23 Sep 2010 and the tenancy & occupancy doesnt start until fri 1 oct 2010.

    Because she hasnt made her claim, tenancy started & moved in within the same benefit week, does this mean she can only get HB from mon 4 oct?

    The regs don’t exactly spell it out do they? Personally I do not see how you can do other than pay from the start of the tenancy. It is manifestly absurd to treat her less favourably for claiming a bit too early! And if you were to do so then arguably there was an onus on your LA to explain the implications to her at the time, and inviting her to wait a week.

    Those was my thoughts but because i couldnt find anything in the regs to support my thoughts i was unsure how to proceed. thanks very much
