    This may have been posted on here previous but does anyone know when DWP intend to transfer all existing Private Tenant cases to LHA.

    A member of staff in my LA believes that this is planned for April 2009 but cannot remember where this was read.

    I don’t recall any decision being made on this yet or any suggestion of it being so soon either!!

    I’ve seen nothing to suggest that this is going to happen. I think that there is the intention to do it but, it seems, not yet.

    Hi

    I believe DWP are to review the LHA scheme in 2010 – I’d expect some tinkering with the scheme after this, including probably bringing the remaining PRS cases into LHA…

    Yup, I had Apr 2009 in my head at one point, but then it went away so I decided I must have dreamt it….

    I knew I’d seen something here, so I went and found these:

    I thought the 2009 date was for the benefit of pensioner claims that are potentially a year behind becuase of their backdating rules. A pensioner claim made in March 2009 can be treated as made in March 2008 (ignoring the changes to the backdating rules), which pre-dates LHA, but a pensioner claim made in April 2009 must fall into LHA.

    Aaahhh, may as well have been a dream then, given that the dwellers in the lofty towers of DWPdom really don’t live in the same world as the rest of us. I refer you to the ESA board as a case in point. 8)
