The council has issued a claim for repayment of overpayment of benefit because the tenant has moved out. We were unaware that the tenant had 'skipped' as we were receiving the benefit direct from the council. We have visited the property and it is clear from the dates of the mail on the floor that she was in residence longer than the council suggests.

How do we go about resisting this claim?
