If we were paying a landlord and then found out there had been an overpayment that was recoverable, we would decide who to recover the overpayment from.

If, for example, you had started work and had not told us of this change, we could take the view that your landlord could not have been expected to know of this change. Therefore, he might not know he was being overpaid so we could well decide to recover the overpayment from you. Each overpayment case is looked at individually.
