Permission to Speak with Universal Credit or Housing Benefit


England and Wales



Product Code: F103

This form is automatically provided by our Tenancy Builder so if you already use that, you don’t need this form.

A consent form which may accompany a tenancy agreement or be provided during a tenancy asking the tenant for permission to speak with Universal Credit or a Housing Benefit department about their claim. The form is GDPR compliant.

Under the new GDPR rules from 25 May 2018, a consent such as this should not be incorporated within any tenancy but instead should be a separate form (which can be attached to the tenancy agreement for safe keeping). The tenant must be able to withdraw their consent as easily as they gave it under the rules.

It can be signed at the same time as a tenancy or during a tenancy.

The form is compatible or works as a standalone PDF (with integrated electronic signing subject to appropriate reader being used).
