star this property answer text <p>There are many complex factors which contribute to and affect the financial sustainability of landlords in this sector. Research carried out by the National Federation of ALMOs shows over three quarters of their tenants come onto Universal Credit with pre-existing rent arrears.</p><p>Arrears are usually temporary and the majority of claimants do succeed in paying their rent, managing their monthly payments and clearing their arrears over time</p><p>We continually review and improve Universal Credit in response to feedback. In 2018, following Autumn Budget 2017, we have implemented a comprehensive and wide-ranging package of improvements worth £1.5 billion. These include making advances of up to 100% of the indicative award available (from the start of a claim) and increasing the repayment period to 12 months, removing the 7 waiting days, providing an additional payment of 2 weeks of Housing Benefit to support claimants when they transition to Universal Credit, and changing how claimants in temporary accommodation receive support for their housing costs.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Under Articles 17(1)(g) and (h) of the draft Withdrawal Agreement with the EU the Government agreed that applications to the Scheme will not cost any more than the cost of a comparable document for UK nationals and that applications from holders of valid Permanent Residence documentation or indefinite leave to remain will be free of charge. This was also confirmed in the Prime Minister’s open letter to EU citizens in the UK.</p><p>The fee of £65 is the same as the current charge for documentation under EU law and is less than the cost of a British passport. A lower fee (£32.50) for applications from children under the age of 16 is consistent with the age at which reduced fees for a British passport apply. There is also no charge for children in local authority care.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We do not keep information on gang-related crime, but we do have information at force level about trends in knife crime, gun crime, and homicide in the West Midlands and Coventry which are offences often associated with gang activity. The latest year-on-year data comparing June 2018 to June 2017 show that knife crime has increased by 18% in the West Midlands compared to England and Wales as a whole which has seen a 12% increase.</p><p>When looking at the 5-year trend, knife crime in the West Midlands is up by 72%, which is higher than the rise for England and Wales in the same period (61%). Whilst gun crime in the West Midlands has risen by 14% between 2013/14 and 2016/17, this is lower than the rise witnessed in England and Wales (31%). Over the past five years, homicide in the West Midlands has gone up by 24%, compared to 36% in England and Wales.</p> more like this
