Coventry West Credit Union (CWCU) can pay your rent directly to your landlord.
Rent is always appropriated to pay the landlord and will not be taken by the credit union for other purposes.
CWCU processes rent to landlords by Bank Transfer, any benefit left over remains in your savings account and can be withdrawn without notice, a minimum of £1 must be left in the account at all time to keep the account open.
This is a 60 day notice account. Once Housing Benefit has arrived into your credit union account, 60 days notice to change payment details or rent or landlord must be given.
Non-members need to join the credit union to be able to join this scheme.
Recent independent polling commissioned by Housing Voice found that affordable housing is in fact a greater concern for families than either education or crime. Our survey also found that 71% think the Coalition Government is either giving ‘none’ or ‘not much’ attention to affordable housing, and that the public do not see this issue as a high priority for politicians.
