Reply To: Paid to claimant in error

Though both those deal with a situation where the claimant was more then 8 weeks in arrears. Then Regulation 95(1)(b) comes in to force (Circumstance where we must pay the landlord). From what I understand from tigerk, that is not the case here.

In this situation we are looking at Regulation 96, Circumstances where we may pay the landlord. So though the claimant asked for the payment it is still the LA decision who to pay.
