A little confused to my rights in this case after reading a few of your threads to get the answer.
Here goes..I receive the rent direct for my tenant.Have received a letter from HB saying 'because there has been a change in your tenant's circumstances, more benefit was paid than they were entitled to. Details of how the overpayment has been worked out are given below.' They then say when it was overpaied and the amount £283.86. 'If I decide that you must pay back the overpayment from 16 /1 /12 to 5 /2 /12 because we were not informed of your tenants changes when they happened, I will either issue an invoice or recover the overpayment from ongoing benefit'
So is it the tenant who should pay or am I liable ?
Help greatly appreciated. Shirley.
