We have a LH who has lost her job and claimed UC. We advised her to claim help with her service charges via UC and they have awarded an amount for these. She doesn’t have a mortgage. She isn’t paying us anything for service charges so we are looking at applying for a managed payment for service charges and/or Arrears Direct Payment.

The UC47 form refers to “rent”, “tenant” and “landlord” throughout so not sure how to complete or is there a different form?

Anyone done this before?
