Q1.....20 years +
Q2.....The landlord is the local council..I have not approached them yet .....wanted to know my legal position
I have been asked to look at this? Please explain how this has come about and how you now know this.
Found the rental contract after many years which highlighted the error
Thanks. In which case you are entitled to the overpayment back. Have you raised it with the council?
The legal phrase is (oddly enough) that you paid "under mistake".
Expect the council to say that the contract is wrong. It would be worth asking some neighbours what rent they pay.
