  • Housing benefit the problem areas
    Level: Standard

    Housing benefit is there to help with rent and avoid eviction, including for the growing number of people in low-paid work. Yet over four billion pounds of housing benefit goes unclaimed by over one million households. With the roll out of universal credit not due to complete until 2022, housing benefit remains as important as ever.

    This one-day course looks in detail at a number of common areas of dispute that housing benefit claimants may face and how they can be resolved to ensure maximum entitlement is received.
