2 Assessments for PIP?

KnobblyKnees Member Posts: 42 Courageous
Eventually had an assessment last month with Capita and then last week received a letter from the DWP stating they now had all the information required and would let me know their decision ( refusal ha! ) on my PIP claim. In the same post was a letter from the Health Advisory Service informing me they were coming to see me in my home next week. Is this normal or a mix up? The problem is it's not my home, I am a house guest and the property owner won't agree to someone poking around their house. Can I refuse this appointment or insist it's done on their premises?

    Hello, I would phone the DWP and the H A S and ask what the home visit is about as you are a house guest and your host is not happy for strangers to be making such visits, but on the other hand if this is your new, temporary address then they may have just cause to visit.
