This entry is part 7 of 7 in the series Housing Benefit - 8 weeks arrears appeal / compensation
  • Before appealing, you should have asked for a written statement of reasons within one month of the decision.
  • Once this has been received, the first stage of an appeal is to request a revision of the decision. When this is done, someone of higher authority than the original decision maker will review the decision.
  • If the new decision is not more favourable to you, then it can be requested to go to a tribunal.
  • If the new decision is more favourable to you, this will be regarded as a whole new decision and the whole procedure starts again (request written statement of reasons, then request to review).

The below appeal letter relates to a decision not to pay landlord housing benefit despite the tenant being 8 weeks or more in arrears but can be amended accordingly.
