Ok I moved to a flat June 1st this year, problem is that because I am getting housing benefits the landlord wants £30 a week of the £90 in advance and when the housing benefit cheque arrives to pay off the arrears for the month.
Problem with this is he has worked it out as getting paid every 4 weeks on a Monday therefore wants £270 on the 4th week.
So far though he has realised his mistake and just takes £30 a week then the rest when the cheque arrives.
Last month I paid £300 instead of the £270 I expected(so was in debt with myself before I even had cash to spend i.e even when getting the rent payment in it didnt cover what he wanted by £30
So this months payment is due and he wants £300 at 9am today(Monday) when according to my records with all the £30's I have paid, the £90 first week in advance and the £300 I paid last month to pay up to the 3rd of August I owe £180 exactly(since I never gave him £30 Friday as was away) so that would mean I would be £120 in credit meaning I wouldnt have to give £30 again for 4 weeks but he told me I need to pay £30 this coming friday and my £30 arrears from last week.
