Under the Local Housing Allowance Scheme payments are normally made to the tenant. In certain circumstances, we can pay Local Housing Allowance directly to the Landlord. We will pay directly to a Landlord if we decide the tenant is:

  • vulnerable; or
  • if they are 8 weeks or more in arrears with their rent.

Current payment dates are available at the bottom of the Housing Benefit page.
