I have a tenant who owed us some 1500 in rent - this was because of a mistake made by the DSS - the tenant subsequently moved out but i pursued the council (Leeds) for their LHA payment - i was surprised to find that on receipt they had taken not only the 9 per week ongoing recovery for a previous overpayment but a final amount of 659 to clear the tenants previous overpayment. When i queried why this wasnt to be deducted at 9 per week from their new landlords payments i was told the council was well within their rights to do this and also i had no right of appeal once they had decided to refute my claim to this 659. this seems draconian to say the least, but also unfair to the tenant who had agreed to the 9 recovery but is now being chased by me for the remaining 659 (realistaically i have no chance of getting this back from the tenant)
what can i do?
