star this property answer text <p>The Government Estate Strategy sets out an ambition to rebalance the economy, creating regional growth and locating jobs outside of London. This, along with the considerable increases in rental costs in London, and the commercial challenges in retaining property of any size, means that the Department’s strategy is to gradually migrate processing work out of London. While there will be no impact to public facing Jobcentre services, it does mean that a number of central London processing sites will close by 2023.</p><p> </p><p>As we look to close these offices, we will redistribute the work to other processing hubs across the UK and, wherever possible, seek to redeploy London based staff to other areas of DWP or other Government Departments. We will not be in a position to assess the net impact on jobs until this activity has completed.</p><p> </p><p>Finally, despite these closures, the Department will continue to be a significant employer in London.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In December 2017, and as announced as part of the budget measures, we made changes to the guidance to ensure that when Private Sector Housing Benefit claimants move on to Universal Credit, we know whether they had their rent paid directly to their landlord previously, and why. This allows our work coaches to determine whether a managed payment to the landlord for the Universal Credit claim may need to be applied too, and will prompt a conversation with the claimant.</p><p> </p><p>We changed the process following a request for an Alternative Payment Arrangement (APA) for Managed Payments to Landlords from Private Rented Sector Landlords. This means that following a landlord’s request for a Managed Payment to Landlord, the claimant has seven days to provide proof that the rent arrears do not exist, or give a good reason why the Managed Payment should not be put in place. If the claimant does not take action, then the landlord’s application will be approved and we will inform the landlord of the final decision of the APA request. The change in process has considerably simplified and sped up the APA request for landlords. We have retained a safeguard for the claimant to challenge the APA request e.g. where the claimant is in dispute with the landlord.</p>
