Social rented sector tenants


For social rented sector tenants, their Universal Credit additional amount for housing costs will be their actual eligible housing costs which includes service charges covered by Universal Credit.

Universal Credit will not provide support for personal utility costs, such as water or electricity.

If a social rented sector tenant has any spare bedrooms, their additional amount for housing costs will be reduced by:

 14% for one spare bedroom

  25% for 2 or more spare bedrooms
