This benefit is paid by the local authority to help meet the cost of housing for tenants living in social housing. You can claim housing benefit if you are unemployed or on a low income.
For more information go to the Shropshire Council or Herefordshire Council websites
You may have to pay different amounts of council tax in different council areas, even when the income of claimants are the same.
For more information, please see the Shropshire Council or Herefordshire Council websites.
We work with Shropshire Council's debt recovery team to try and ensure that individual circumstances are taken in to account. Where appropriate the council may temporarily suspend further action, including temporarily suspending baliffs, to allow our tenancy advice officers time to work with tenants and arrange realistic repayment plans for all debts.
