Civil news extension of temporary changes to housing claims

Changes affecting housing claims submitted from 13 April 2021 will now run until 30 September 2021 instead of 30 June as originally intended.

What are the changes?

The changes allow providers to make claims where their actual costs reach the same value as the fixed £157 fee. These ‘incurred profit costs’ are calculated in accordance with the relevant hourly rates set out in the remuneration regulations.

This amendment also means that claims in respect of disbursements on these cases may also be submitted.

How to make a claim

Guidance on the procedure for claiming and the relevant claim forms can be obtained from your contract manager.
