    I think we could probably sort it by an exchange or swap although it may take a while to do this.

    the advice from CAB, although factually correct isnt particularly helpful in my opinon given that people will take it as gospel due to who its coming from.

    if the OP now happily goes away for a few weeks thinking all is well for up to 13weeks & the LA write for info or are informed no one is home, benefit can end up being suspended & cancelled. if payments were going direct to a landlord several weeks could pass before they notice or they return to find themselves in a huge mess.

    if you think you may be away for some time, as with any changes to your circumstances, always inform your LA.
    worked for DWP & Local Authorities in Benefits for 20years+ ....not sure why mind you.
