    Just out of interest, related to another hot topic!

    Just a thought, for most polls, obviously, a yes or no would suffice, for ones like this maybe a ‘You’re having a laugh’ option could be a choice ??

    I can’t imagine there are many authorities that have chosen to pay HB monthly.

    However, whilst it is more fiddly to administer, I can see the benefits for paying HB monthy to those tenants with calendar-monthly rent charges. It would certainly be easier for those tenants to work out their shortfall without having to work out for themselves what their daily/weekly rent charge is.

    I would be interesting to hear from the person who has voted “yes” as to whether they have experienced any problems with paying HB monthly.

    I did a bit of research on this about 18 months ago when faced with a request from a local HA. Of the sites that I contacted I think only one, Aberdeen actually paid calendar monthly whilst another, Reading were either considering it or had just moved away from it.

    That’s put those two on the spot then! 😈

    Although most of our tenancies are monthly, I know of only 2 LAs (out of 80+) that pay our tenants monthly.

    Not that I mind, however… 😀

    …life would be very dull 😥 if I could see at a glance whether or not there was any shortfall for my tenants to make up! That is what calculators are for after all. 😆

    We started paying monthly this year both by bacs and cheque. We have had no problems and the claimants with monthly rents prefer it as they can identify their shortfall more easily.

    The only problem, from the admin side, is that we have to create a new claim if we want to change from a weekly based payment to a monthly one.

    I used to work for the City of York authority and they paid HB calendar monthly, as well as weekly and 4-weekly, although it was 6 years ago! Never had any problems back then, but times change.
