Notice to Local Authority Tenant 8 Weeks in Arrears

This form is not suitable for Universal Credit.  

When a tenant is claiming housing benefits and if they become eight weeks in arrears, the landlord is entitled as a right to have payment made direct. However, for payment to be made directly under regulation 95 Housing Benefit Regulations 2006, the landlord must notify the local authority that the tenant is in 8 weeks of arrears. 

This document is a specially designed notice for notifying the local authority and should be accompanied by the evidence as specified on the notice. If the tenant is not quite eight weeks in arrears, there is still a discretion to pay directly under regulation 96. In which case, use form number F086.
