Housing Benefit and Council Tax Benefit / Universal Credit
We advise tenants to apply for Unversal Credit when first signing their tenancy agreement in order to have your housing costs met if you are on low income. If you are already in receipt of housing benefit when moving a Spire View Housing Association property you should complete a Change of Circumstances form to move your housing benefit over to your new address.
