  • LHA/Universal Credit

    Bill Irvine launches new UC website/resource

    Bill Irvine, the UK's foremost authority on housing benefit and Universal Credit has announced the launch of his new website - the only site relating to Universal Credit, Housing Benefit & LHA, dedicated to Landlords.

    If you're an existing member, you should have already received an email inviting you to simply click the Returning Members' tab to create a new user name, permitting full access.

    Alternatively, if you're a Landlord or Letting Agent interested in becoming a member just provide your contact details and Bill will take care of everything.

    As a PT partner, Bill is hoping our members will find the time to have a good look around and be pleased with both the new layout and content. You'll find there's loads of new material to browse.

    A new library section, includes topics like:

    a) Legislation (Acts & associated regulations);

    b) DWP guidance covering all the key areas of interest;

    c) Standard Letters & forms (seeking revision, mandatory reconsiderations, appeals, complaints);

    d) Tribunal caselaw, carefully selected and focused on critical issues like Direct Payments, Overpayments etc.

    e) Copies of all new and historic updating Bulletins which we produce every time there's a new piece of legislation or policy is introduced.

    f) Policy in Practice have provided access to its UC Calculator & Budgeting tool.

    g) The Useful Links section is now more prominent, is packed with content, and simply by clicking, directs you to a range of related matters;

    h) Live link to my Twitter exchanges with DWP and other related agencies

    Screenshot from new website:

    Bill will continue to keep you updated on Universal Credit, LHA and any related Welfare Reform developments, through the site and his regular Bulletins. This will be especially important in the next 4 years, during which all "working age" legacy claimants (LHA etc) transition to Universal Credit.

    If you're looking for specific information and can't find it or would like to clarify something you're unsure about, you can contact Bill direct through either phone, email or make use of the new "Ask an Expert"  section.

    Bill welcomes your feedback, plus any suggestions you may have which could improve the site layout, content or its effectiveness as a "One Stop" resource.

    With users' help, Bill is on a mission to continue developing and improving the site to make it an indispensable resource for his members.
