Pay housing benefit overpayment

If you are overpaid Housing Benefit you will normally have to repay it. We will write and tell you what your correct benefit is and how much the overpayment is.  We will either ask you to repay the amount in full, or we can deduct the overpayment from any future payment you receive from us.
