Temporary accommodation

Will I be charged for Temporary Accommodation?

You will be expected to pay for whatever type of temporary accommodation we provide for you furnished or unfurnished.

The cost will vary depending on where you are staying and what your income is. You will have to pay rent every week or monthly. If you fail to pay you could be evicted.

The rent we charge you will be based on the costs we incur in providing the accommodation, for example

  • What it costs us to manage the property
  • What it costs us to furnish the property
  • What it costs us to carry out repairs

Please note that there are some charges, which will not be covered by housing benefit such as:

  • gas
  • electricity
  • water and sewerage rates
  • telephone
  • television licence
