UC Your phone appointment to Verify Housing Costs

Hello Guys.
I have an Telephone interview on Tuesday for Universal Credit in regards to verify my housing costs. On my journal they said be ready to hand your tenancy agreement. 
Could anyone please tell me how it will work as its my first time claiming UC?

Many thanks 
James K.

    Hi and welcome @james19o6 Great you have joined us

    It is normal procedure that they will want to see a copy of your tenancy agreement so don't worry, the call will be to check the details you entered in your application relating to housing costs and this will be followed up  by you sending a copy of your tenancy agreement

    Hope this helps any further help just ask away

    Hi again it may be worth getting electronic copy as long as it has signatures on and is a copy of your agreement and not just a generic one 

    I posted mine 

    @steve51 this isnt a phone assessment just a call to confirm housing costs

    I would wait and see what they say first.
    my advice is given freely and is correct to the best of my knowledge.
