WELFARE REFORM AND BENEFIT CHANGES
If you’ve been a landlord for more than a year or two, you will already seen some fairly substantial changes in the area of welfare benefits and in particular the Housing Benefits paid to tenants.
2013 will see the introduction of even more change, affecting not just private tenants but tenants in the social sector with substantial reforms to just about all areas of welfare provision.
To find out more on these changes visit Homestamp’s dedicated page about Welfare Reform.
