||<p>The Department maintains guidance on GOV.UK, relevant for private and social sector
landlords, with information about Universal Credit including the landlord portal which
has existed since 2017. This can be accessed at: <a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/universal-credit-and-rented-housing--2/universal-credit-and-rented-housing-guide-for-landlords"
</p><p>The Department will deliver improvements which include: (a) an online form
for all landlords to request a managed payment for rent from Universal Credit, and
(b) an upload facility for social landlords to notify annual rent changes via the
existing landlord portal. Both systems are expected to be fully operational by the
end of 2019 following completion of rigorous testing.</p>
