£3700 although there is an appeal as to the overpayment as it was stated that the overpayment was because we were a couple which i strenuously deny. However the summons issued for court states:
that on or about 2nd September 2011 in the county of ........ with a view to obtaining housing benefit made a statement or representation which he knew to be false in that he indicated on the housing benefit application form that the information provided was correct and complete whereas it was not in that he indicated the he rented a room at ............ from .......... the landlord, whereas in fact ........... was not the landlord of that property.
I say she was my landlord.
But all of the evidence the have provided is statements trying to show we were a couple, which is why i am confused???
No of the evidence appears to show or intimate that she was not the landlord. she admits to taking £400 per month in rent.
As i have already said we were NOT a couple although she is saying we were but i strongly deny this!!
It appears from the research i have done that the evidence does not relate to the summons?? But was wondering if they were trying to be sneaky in that they are going to say she was not the landlord because she was a partner?? However my understanding is that the summons must be clear in what they summonsing under and is not specific enough for them to suggest that she was not the landlord because she was a partner??
can they use the evidence they have supplied in that case as it appears irrelevant to the summons???
