SOCIAL WELFARE (CONSOLIDATED SUPPLEMENTARY WELFARE ALLOWANCE) (AMENDMENT) (NO. 2) (RENT SUPPLEMENT) REGULATIONS 2009

EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Instrument and does not purport to be a legal interpretation.)

These regulations provide that to qualify for payment of Rent Supplement a person must have been residing in rented accommodation or accommodation for homeless persons (or any combination of these) for a period of 183 days within the preceding 12 month period. This provision will not apply to persons who have been assessed by a local authority as having a housing need under section 9 of the Housing Act 1988 (as amended).

These regulations also provide that, where a person refuses two offers of accommodation provided by a housing authority within any continuous 12 month period, a supplement shall not be payable for a period of 12 months from the date of the second refusal.

These measures come into effect from 27 July 2009.
