HB Exempt accomodation refused & backdating UC

If a new claim is made for housing benefit for ‘exempt’ sheltered accommodation, but housing benefit won’t accept it as exempt and the tenant then claims Universal Credit, will they lose benefit for the 6 weeks it took housing benefit to query the exempt status? She is under pension age and will be appealing the HB decision.

Thanks
