Payments direct to landlords

If you are receiving direct payments already you must consider the following:

  • The council or the tenant can cancel the arrangement to pay direct but the landlord will be informed in writing
  • The council does not assume any responsibilities for the tenant by making payments direct to the landlord
  • The landlord must inform the council immediately in writing if the tenant moves out or becomes aware of any other information that may affect the tenant's benefit
  • The landlord will be responsible for the repayment of any overpayment that occurs after the tenant has moved out
