Reply To: Paid to claimant in error


No, I agree with you Andy to a point.

From the origional post it appears clear there has been an error, it was not a case that the LA decided not to pay to the LL, they decided to do it then made a mistake.

I do agree that the issue is the level of loss (if any) that falls to the landlord because of that mistake. If the landlord does get his rent the level of loss may be slight. Perhaps an appology and maybe a £50.00 compensation for time and trouble. If the landlord does not get his money then the compensation could be more.
