HOUSING BENEFIT

Before legislation was changed in January 2019 which allowed a disabled person like myself to claim  ESA with  SDP  i  was forced to pay full rent for over 1 year which nearly bankrupt myself.
Anyone out there willing to be a representative with me at the tribunal at Watford?

    Hi @teejays1617 sorry to hear what has happened! Have you contacted your local CAB for advice?

    Hi Ami2301 
                       Yes I contacted my local CAB and they said that they cannot represent
    me at the tribunal as they have insufficient funds and staff to help me

    Hi @teejays1617, unfortunately this isn't a service that Scope offers either. When is your tribunal taking place?

    CAB no longer represent anyone at Tribunals. Welfare rights or a law centre is the best place to start, if you have any of these in your area.
