Temporary accommodation, new HB claim

Help please, my client is in B& B type accommodation, was in a private tenancy for 15 years , landlord died, new landlord moved cl out to do ‘repairs’ then a issues a section 21 order was issued , expires in November, as no rent was being charged while repairs were being done HB stopped, in June 2021.my client never claimed HB for the B&B costs, landlord will not let cl back into her old house so she is still in temporary accommodation. I want to keep her on legacy benefits if possible ESA PIP, she is better of on these. Can I get her back on HB ??? The Council housing options service are not being very helpful, I know the tenancy issue sounds very dodgy but priority at present is getting her HB paid for her B&B and getting Council to re-home her
