To make sure you get the right amount of Housing Benefit, you must tell us when you move home or your circumstances change.
Change of address
You must tell us if you change address so we can update your housing benefit and council tax records.
If your circumstances change
If your circumstances change, the amount of Housing Benefit you get may change. It is benefit fraud if you fail to update your details and claim benefits you’re no longer entitled to. This could result in a fine or prosecution.
