My daughter rented a house and tenancy began on 08/02/2012, it is a six month tenancy which continued as a periodic tenancy once the original six months expired.

 

The rental agent is what can only be called a rogue agent

 

the fact that she has had continued problems with getting them to do repairs,

 

which has culminated in her being injured when kitchen units fell from the wall.

 

Currently there is a claim for damages in force.

 

The problem she now has is the fact that the housing benefit office has refused to accept a periodic tenancy again

and have said she cannot get benefit if she cannot provide a new tenancy

but the agents are saying that the original suffices and on advice from the landlord not to sign her into a new tenancy on the basis of it complicating the claim.

 

I believe this is purely a retaliation move.

Any advice please.

The fact that she relies on housing benefit and the LA are asking for a new tenancy agreement is immaterial as to whether the LL has to grant a new tenancy agreement (he/she does not have to if they choose not to).

 

A periodic tenancy is more than sufficient for HB - so long as your daughter can prove she lives in the property (e.g. utility bills, usual identification items); if HB do not accept this, then your daughter will obviously not be able to pay her rent, which may result in the LL issuing a notice to her and thereafter proceeding to court for a possession order.
