Landlord tenancy questionaire form at Ashton under Lyne Jobcentre

We're waiting for Frank Zola to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

With regards your Ashton under Lyne Jobcentre, please supply [1] a copy of the landlord and tenancy questions form given to UC claimants, as discussed in https://thepoorsideof.life/2019/02/14/64... You can see an image extract of the form at: https://thepoorsideoflife.files.wordpres...

The form contains questions, such as:

a. ‘Would your landlord accept less rent at times if you could not afford to pay the full rent?’

b. ‘Will your landlord accept a lower rent if universal credit does not meet your full rent liability?’

c. ‘Would your landlord take you to court to evict you if you failed to pay the rent?’

d. ‘Would your landlord take legal action to recover rent arrears?’

[2] If a claimant declines to complete this form or does not have any of the information requested, what penalty, benefit delay or sanction would apply? What legislation requires a UC claimant to provide any answer to all of the forms questions?

[3] For forms questions a, b, c, and d asks a claimant to offer an opinion about what a landlord could/would do, can you advise how a claimant would know what action a landlord may take with regards these questions. If a claimants answers a, b, c, and d by saying:

'I do not know, please ask the landlord or read the tenancy terms and conditions'

what penalty, benefit delay or sanction would apply?

[4] What is the purpose(s) of this form and will it's content/responses be shared/processed by any other organisation such as a local authority?

Yours faithfully,

Frank Zola
