    There are still ways for the rent to be paid directly to the landlord.

    See here:

    Certainly in my area social housing landlords are 'stepping up' their support for their tenants which is a good thing in my books.

    You can still get UC housing element paid directly to your landlord.

    They have actually made it easier to do this, since they got so many complaints about UC claimants getting into rent arrears.

    Not just private landlords, but large housing asociations running 'council housing' , and councils themselves were/still are complaining about it.

    Oops, I'd missed this page and was replying to the post on the previous page.
    Pmlindyloo already gave that shelter link.

    I'm intelligent enough to know that I don't know everything.
    But I'm good at searching for, and finding, stuff.

    i have been sent a payment card from my housing association and i just go to a paypoint on UC day and use my debitcard that my UC is paid onto to pay my rent.
    that way i have a record of rent payment on my bank statement , and also you get a reciet from the paypoint outlet.
    with UC its best to get ALL your bills payable the day after whatever your UC payment day is each month and pay the lot together.
    that way the only money left in your bank is the money you live on.

    And there’s the BV scam..... Torres we have reduced the housing list and more people have been given social housing... truth is they just bought in UC to trip up disabled (that suffer forgetting stuff becaus of med, old and disabled addicts ect ) get evicted and have to go slumming it freeing up properties that house these reduced numbers.
