    While my tenant is having a nightmare time dealing with issues with the council regarding fraud I had a lovely surprise yesterday.

    12 months ago, I realised my tenant was entitled to 5 bed allowance, she had been in the house 6 months and 6 month tenancy had expired so I reissued it at the 5 bed rate and submitted it to the council, they knocked it back because she was not due a review for another 6 months. I forgot about it an moved on. Other complications meant that I have not tried it again.

    To my surprise they have now done a review pulled out my contract from 12 months ago and have awarded her a 5 bed rate. Which I will receive to April 2012, then it will flip back to 4 bed.

    lol

    May be its too good to be true, time will tell.

    Mmmm….
    Too good to be true? I think you’re being short-changed myself!! 😉

    When was this review done?

    Although the 5-room rate has gone, the claimant will get protection for 9 months from the restriction to the new lower 4-room rate. So, if the review has only just been done, I’d say the 5-bed rate should extend beyond April!

    Her tenancy started in 21st june 2010 for the four bed rate £890, I changed her tenancy on 21/11/2010 to the 5 bed rate of £1340, they have just awarded it from 3rd Oct 2011 to 1st April 2011.

    What do you think?
