Permission to Speak with Universal Credit or Housing Benefit

This form is now integrated within Tenancy Builder. If you create agreements this way, you do not need this form.

A consent form accompanying a tenancy agreement or be provided during a tenancy, asking the tenant for permission to speak with Universal Credit or a Housing Benefit department about their claim. 

The form is GDPR compliant. Under the new GDPR rules from 25 May 2018, a consent such as this should not be incorporated within any tenancy but instead should be a separate form (which can be attached to the tenancy agreement for safe keeping). 

The tenant must be able to withdraw their consent as quickly as they gave it under the rules. It can be signed simultaneously as a tenancy or during a tenancy. The form is signable.co.uk compatible or works as a standalone PDF (with integrated electronic signing subject to the appropriate reader).
