Just 4 months until Universal Credit is launched..

It’s been promoted as a simplistic system that will replace 6 existing benefits with a single monthly payment for those who are out of work or on a low income. But, many landlords are apprehensive that they will experience rent arrears as their rent is not getting paid to them directly by the Government, but through their tenants instead.
