Question about rental properties in UK

I have a question about rental properties in UK. I have a tenant who is getting housing benefit from the council. Council is paying him the benefits and he is transferring the rent directly to my account.

Now the new situation is that housing council wants to pay the rent directly to me (landlord) .

Do you know pros and cons of the new situation.

Re: Question about rental properties in UK

I would say it would be much safer for you to get it direct. At present the tenant could spend the money themselves. And if they become no longer eligible, you would know very quickly directly from the council...
