Landlords' or agents' rights of appeal are limited to areas directly involving them and the council.

For example, where the council is seeking to recover an overpayment of housing benefit from a landlord or agent.

To appeal a landlord or agent is bound by the same rules as a claimant.

The appeal:

  • Must be in writing
  • Must give reasons for the appeal
  • Must be made within one month of the date of notification to the landlord/agent

A landlord or agent has no right of appeal relating to a claimant's benefit award.
