Rent changes effective 6 April 2020 – tell Universal Credit or Housing Benefit

This year rents are increasing. Changes are effective 6 April 2020: tenants need to update to DWP for Universal Credit, or to Housing Benefit.

If you are a CHISEL tenant claiming benefit, remember that you have to inform Housing Benefit or Universal Credit of the rent changes, and any changes to service charges, in April of each year. Every UC claimant will receive a notification at the beginning of April, via their to-do list, reminding them to report any change to their rent.
