Universal Credit, tenants and landlords

Published on Wed, 11th Jul 2018 11:55

On 11 July 2018 the National Federation of ALMOs (NFA) and the Association of Retained Council Housing (ARCH) published a joint report highlighting the increasing burden of debt that Universal Credit is causing for tenants and landlords, and calling for Government to slow down the roll-out and fix the outstanding problems with UC. The NFA and ARCH, who represent over a million council homes, are voicing strong concerns about the length of time it is taking tenants to get control of their finances after the initial transfer to UC, and the impact on council HRAs.
