Well, reading reg 102:

“…a relevant authority [b:568835db79]may[/b:568835db79] recover a recoverable overpayment….by deduction from any housing benefit to which that person is entitled..

seems to suggest that your colleague is correct.

Can’t find anything other than “may” in the DWP Overpayments Guidance either.
