Hi

I have received a letter from the housing benefit office notifying me that my tenant has been overpaid housing benefit of 2695.00 and that they will deduct from the rent due to me the amount of 20.00 per month.
This overpayment was done before the tenant moved to my house.

The housing benefit office says that I must recover the 20.00 from the tenant.

Surely, this is nothing to do with me and if they have a debt with the tenant it is up to them to recover it not to me.

Can they do this?.
