Recovery of over payments
HB gave no explaination as to why the benefit should have been stopped, just that they had investigated the tenant.
The tenant had been in the property for over a year
To my knowlege, the tenant was originally paying the rent herself , as she was working.
She then was out of work and applied to the housing authority for benefit. This she eventually recieved and i was paid directly.
During the tenancy I did receive complaints of her playing the TV to loud during the day. I called round, she was in, and we agreed to have more consideration.
In October she contacted me to finish her tenancy
The tenant gave notice of termination of tenancy ,I visited to check the house, then paid her back the Bond .
HB state I cannot appeal against the overpayment , but can appeal against the payment.
I had no knowledge of her circumstances changing
Have you any advice on what i should put in the appeal letter
