Won't that make it easier for them to take me to court?
I've not heard anything at all since that last email but I'm guessing now that means CLI have informed Enagic that they were unable to retrieve the money and now Enagic could be preparing to take it further? Or they might leave it?
People living together for most of a week and having some shared financial arrangements would be considered 'a couple'.
Of course some people just don't think of any benefits claims and contacting Government departments, as they may not realise the importance of reporting change in circumstances. Or they are afraid that they would not be able to afford to live, if their benefits were reduced.
Even if the matter is dealt with as an overpayment, rather than being taken to Court, people should be aware that administrative penalties applied, can be as much as 50% of the amount overpaid. In this case an admin penalty may not have been applied, but depending on the individual case, an admin penalty amount could prove to be a very expensive lesson.
Agree with what London states "In terms of understanding the system, you need to call and inform them every time something changes with your income or living arrangements. It's not really that complex."
