Providing evidence for housing benefit and council tax support

Proof of rent and tenancy

We will need to see your rent book or rent receipts together with your most recent tenancy agreement. If you are unable to provide a copy, please send in a landlord declaration (to be completed by your landlord) or a letter from your landlord. The evidence must be signed by you and the landlord.
This information must show who your landlord is, when the tenancy started, the amount of rent you pay and how often this is due. If there are service charges included in your rent (for example, water) then we will need a full breakdown of these charges.
