Hello could I have some advice please? Am really stressed over it!
Hello! This might sound all a bit crazy but please bare with me. So I claim universal credit I live with my 5 year old daughter. I have had a call saying someone has rang up saying I live with my partner?! Which is ludicrous as for one am single! So don’t even know where this information has come from. Anyway I have to go in for a meeting the 8th of January and take my tenancy agreement and 3 months bank statement this is fine but I pay my rent by cash on the 28th of every month, I don’t know why the landlord wanted it in cash but I don’t mind paying it like that and I have receipts for them all and on my tenancy agreement it says I can pay by cash, check, standing order etc. So is this going to be a problem? Also on November and December you can see where I have took out the lump sum of 500, and on another I took out 300 and then on another day 200 (as this is my rent I pay to my landlord) but in the October my dad gave me £600 as he knows I have been struggling a bit lately so I used 500 to go to my rent so obviously I Haven’t took out the 500 for October’s month rent. I never told universal credit that my dad gave me me £600 so am I going to get into trouble for that? Am really stressed out over it all. Thanks
