Change in circumstances

Tenants must report all changes to the council immediately in writing.

If the tenant leaves the property then housing benefit will cease from the day they leave, even if you are still charging them rent.

You should not rely on the council to keep you informed about the tenant.

Landlords have duties under the law to inform the council of changes.
