If a person moves from private rented accommodation (rent covered by UC HCE) to sheltered accommodation (rent covered by HB), can they claim 2-Homes payment? – he has unavoidable liability because he has to give a month’s notice. He meets all of the HB conditions for a 2-Homes payment (e.g. he has physically moved into the new home)
I’m aware that this isn’t available to UC claimants – but might it be available in this scenario now that he has HB for the new home? Or, is it not possible because it was UC covering the old home?
