Hi Alex and thank you for helping. it is with Torridge District Council about a claim for Housing Benefit and Council Tax Support. Total amount in the original letter informing me of overpayment is £1864.67. I spoke to the office on the day I received the letter and an ongoing re-payment plan is already in place
Legaly though I did fail to declare the second job will that not be seen as guilty?
I am on JSA
and I am still recieving housing benefit
ok thats a relief! So how do I best prepare for the interview? Should I take legal representation with me?
I am concerned about keeping a clear head in the interview as my anxiety causes panic attacks were my mind goes completely blank, would a letter from my gp for example be taken into consideration?
Can I get free representation?
So what is a 'caution'?
its as simple as that? A verbal rap on the knuckles?
hhmmm what might I be signing?
ok you have no further advice for me on how to prepare for the interview or what to say?
ok thank you for your advice
No thank you
I would have liked a lot more information about how I can prepare for the interview, how I go about finding legal aid or assistance, what information to take with me to the interview. Yes you did give me a very short and factual answer to what you thought were my concerns - will this go to court. In my initial question to you I asked three questions which I had to ask you again in our chat to get an answer. I have consequently found a lot more information online that has helped me. I thank you for your short and to the point answers but they did not give me the information I was actually looking for.
