Reply To: Housing and UC? How to move?
I actually cannot remember how long it took to get DHP but I know it was quick because it has to be quick, I think it was a matter of just a week or two. My private landlord offered me the house and it moved on from there. I am pretty certain I had as much in place as I could have done by the time the landlord offered me the house, such as having the form and filling out as much as I could so then it was just the finer details that needed adding and the council worker kept me up to date with how it was progressing. The landlord knew I was applying for DHP, they were happy to wait. So it’s not all bad news for people on UC.
As for the diff borough or councils I really don’t know, I would give them a ring if I was you and ask, information is knowledge, knowledge is power. xx
