Comment on: Working HB claimants hit 1 million mark
Be interesting to know if they include Local Housing Allowance claimants in this figure, £90 seems a tad low, even with the significant number of partial HB claims
Comment on: Landlords slam welfare pilots
I seem to remember these early cases are only simple JSA claims by single men, so no dependants or complications, a tad worrying m'Lud
So let me get this straight, Local authorities will be penalised if they put their rents up above CPI plus 1% to 2025, Housing Assoiations will be penalised if they don't convert their social rents to 80% market rents ("affordable" MPrisk esq) and PRS rents can continue to rise and HB will meet the cost?

Comment on: Banks to constrain lending
Ah, those poorly perfoming loans, presumably the same loans on the same terms the banks were happy to lend originally as a long term secure asset backed security, now not returning as high a rate as they could get elsewhere. Bankers some you win and some you win.
I believe Mr Barnett is one of those public sector workers employed by a state owned bank is he not, is he in the good bank bit or the bad bank bit though?
Comment on: Tenant panels slow to get off the ground
They don't all have to go via the Designated Person, if the complainant is prepared to wait 8 weeks after the landlord's internal process has been exhausted they can go direct to the ombudsman. It will be interesting to see if the Housing Ombudsman will accept a direct complaint without referring the complainant back to a Designated Person. A number of Providers are taking the opportunity to revisit their whole complaints process and reducing the number of stages significantly.
