Hi there

 

My tenant from hell has recently vacated my property ,The first thing I know about it is the council tell me they have overpaid me the rent and want it back (£900) .The tenant has left some of her property in the flat and never returned the key, How do I stand in regard to the council and returning the money ? ,I have found a similar letter to the ex tenant from the council so it looks like the council are trying to get the money back from her as well!

 

Many thanks Jezzy

I'd have thought the Council should be pursuing their claimant, not you, unless you entered into a written agreement with them on starting direct payments. When would she appear to have abandoned?

 

You might want to consider changing the lock barrels if a key is missing.

Housing benefit is payable from the day tenant moves in until day tenant moves out,when HB is paid direct to LL,LL may have to pay any over payment back ?

 

LL can appeal HB decision in circumstances,but your have to be quick and your local council HB department can advise you

Thanks for the reply's

 

The council were paying me direct because the tenant got the rent and spent it!! so I got it sent direct to me ,seems strange that they are trying to recover the over payment from myself and the tenant, I am under a lot of financial pressure at the moment ,If I have to pay it back do you think I will be able to do it in smallish installments?
