Landlord duties and responsibilities

We believe that working with both private landlords and registered social landlords is an extremely 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.

If you notify us of a change in circumstances that subsequently becomes a fraudulent overpayment, we will not recover that overpayment from you.
