Landlord duties and responsibilities

Working with private landlords as well as registered social landlords is a very important part of our benefits service.

As a landlord receiving Housing Benefit, we ask that you notify us of any changes in your tenant's circumstances that you become aware of.

Please note: Some changes in tenant's circumstances may result in a fraudulent overpayment. Rest assured will not recover that overpayment from you.
