SWLA Members, Have Your Say on Universal Credit

Posted on February 15th, 2018

SWLA will represent it’s members at a Select Committee Review in March hosted by Plymouth City Council. We encourage our members to participate by sending us any issues, concerns and thoughts regarding the Universal Credit introduction and it’s impact on letting your property.

Some areas of focus for any contributions are;

  • the willingness of private landlords to take on Universal Credit claimants due to the risk of arrears or to accept rent up to six weeks in arrears;
  • the implications on the private rented sector homelessness prevention, if tenants were evicted or refused tenancies;
  • the impact of the length of time it takes to process Universal Credit claims (six weeks) on rent arrears and potential eviction;
  • the impact on landlords both social and private from the introduction of Universal Credit

Please send any comments by email; info@landlordssouthwest.co.uk 

Alternatively you can visit the or post a letter to the SWLA office.

This is a great opportunity for PCC to hear how the roll out is going and how it’s impacting landlords and tenants alike. You can submit your views with your name or anonymously.

All submissions must be received by the SWLA office by close of business on Wednesday 28th February 2018.
