A tenant has left a property without my knowledge and now housing benefit are trying to recover rent from me as it was paid direct. I did not know the tenant had left but the council are saying that I should visit once every month to check that they are still there.

is this correct?

am I liable to repay this amount?

Do I have the right to go into the property and check that they are still there?
