Dear Sir/Madam

I have a tenant who claim housing benefits and her rent was paid direct to me.But the rent stoped because she start part time job and housing benefits asked her to put a new claim for her rent. while she was waitting for her claim to sort out her rent went to arrears for more than 8 weeks. I told the Manchester Benefits about the rent in arrear after 8 weeks and the tenant wrote to them and asked them to pay direct to me as befor. But after 14 weeks they sent the cheque to her and as usual she spent it.

Please let me know what shuld I do?
