Abstract/Citation: Amends provisions in the Housing Benefit (General) Regulations 1987 (S.I. 1987/1971) relating to maximum eligible rent in cases where housing benefit is payable, including conferring a discretion on local authorities to pay a lesser sum in appropriate cases (regulations 3,4 & 5). Also requires local authorities to make certain requests for determinations and redeterminations from rent officers and provide for their consequences (regulations 6&8). Adds a discretion to pay more benefit than would otherwise be payable by reason of these Regulations (regulation 7). In addition, makes provisions relating to claimants whose entitlement commenced before Regulations came into force (regulation 10) and extends protection to partners of such claimants.
