FREE Universal Credit CPD Training For Landlords
Universal Credit is by far the largest ‘shake-up’ of the benefits’ system that the whole of the UK has ever known and will affect over 12 million people and has already had a major impact on the private rented sector due to rent arrears.
The majority of press coverage on Universal Credit has focused on jobseekers but according to government figures there are under 2 million people claiming this allowance. It is forecasted that over the next three years more than 10 million people will have to sign up to the system to claim Child and Working Tax Credits and Housing Benefit.
Claimants will be daunted/frightened by the amount of personal details they must gather before they can complete the registration process….and of course for the first time they will receive just one monthly payment, rather than once weekly contributions
Be properly prepared for the introduction of the new benefits system and find out how you can help your tenants receive interim payments, as it takes six weeks upon completion of the registration before claimants can receive their first Universal Credit payment.
Local representatives from the DWP will be presenting an intensive afternoon on welfare reform via Universal Credit (UC) and it’s a ‘must attend’ for all landlords and lettings agents throughout the region.
Plus in collaboration with North Somerset Council there will be a short talk on The Ark Passport Scheme; a brand new solution to help more benefit assisted and low income tenants secure private rented accommodation.
To be held from 12:30-4pm, Wednesday 15th November on the 2nd floor of The Imperial, Weston Super Mare.
