I have a tenant who claimed HousingBenefit after paying first month's rent from borrowed money I now find who was working at time and knew I don't want HB tenants.

HB have sent cheque to me for 2 months rent. He wants one month back. (And if I phoned a tenant as often as he calls me I'd be done for harassment! so I'm annoyed both by the lies, hassle and the persistent phone calls)

My view is that since he can be 20 days late (waiting for HB cheque) why should I pay money back to him when next month's rent is due in less than 10 days?
