Reply To: overpayment – landlord does not know claimant moved!


I take on board what you’re saying, but I’m afraid I must disagree…getting an award of SRP is slightly more concrete than “I may be moving, but I may not, it depends how I feel…”

Should we check a claimant’s capital if they say they’re buying a lottery ticket this week, in case they win a million?

A bit extreme I know, but surely the claimant must take some responsibility to declare changes of circumstance when they occur (not when they might occur), or else what’s the point? Might as well say everything is LA error…..
