Large Overpayment of Housing Benefit decision overturned in the social security tribunal

article Large OverpaymenIn February 2013, Robinson Wilson Solicitors had success in the first tier social security tribunal . This case involved a large over payment of housing benefit of around £25,000. The issue for the tribunal judge to decide was whether the appellant had established that he held a large amount of money on trust, for a close relative. The judge held despite the fact that the money was held a long time ago and recollections fade, the appellant had established that the money was on trust and therefore he did not have a beneficial interest in the money held in his account.
