Benefits - Do I have a Right of Appeal?
Landlords’/agents’ rights of appeal are limited to areas directly involving them and the Council. For example, where the Council is seeking to recover an overpayment of Housing Benefit from a landlord/agent. To appeal a landlord/agent is bound by the same rules as a claimant.
- Must be in writing
- Must give reasons for the appeal
- Must be made within one month of the date of notification to the landlord/agent.
A landlord/agent has no right of appeal relating to a claimant’s benefit award.
