September 2019We are holding seminars on ‘Universal Credit and the Management of Rent Arrears’ in September 2019. This seminar looks at how Universal Credit is being introduced, the effect that it is having on rent collection and arrears and at how rent arrears can best be managed as tenants move to Universal Credit.
Rent arrears are an increasing problem in both local authorities and housing associations. The roll-out of universal credit is bringing further challenges and is driving increases in rent arrears. There is therefore a need to understand how universal credit works, including alternative payment arrangements, and how to manage rent arrears effectively.
The seminar also looks at rent management strategy, value for money and how to move from ‘cure’ to ‘prevention’.
