* Please note, this section applies to Housing Associations and Private tenancies only.
Council Housing Departments and ALMO's are not considered landlords for HB purposes and HB overpayments cannot therefore be recovered from them. Any overpayment will be recovered from the tenant (from their rent account in some circumstances), click here for more information. *
Under which circumstances can an overpayment be recovered from a RSL / private landlord?
What if the overpayment is due to the claimant abandoning the property?
What if the HB Office were previously recovering the overpayment from the claimant?
