Housing benefit overpayments

What happens when we find an overpayment has been made?

We will do the following:

  • identify the period, amount, and cause of the overpayment
  • decide if the overpayment is legally recoverable
  • decide whether to recover the overpayment
  • decide who to recover the overpayment from
  • we will write to you with the details
