My solicitor has told me that the DWP cannot make me repay any money as they clearly stated they would advise me within 20 working days but did not reply for 7 weeks - what am I to do?
For Jo C
As their first letter clearly stated .........20 working days..........why I am to assume that some 7 weeks later they will want further information? They should surely update their letter if you say I would be lucky to hear in 20 days!! I am not a solicitor and therefore did not realise that I should not have shredded the paperwork - I tried to stay within the law but obviously the DWP is a law unto itself.
