    Until recently Centrelink would continue paying rent assistance to tenants even if they stopped paying rent by stopping Centrepay deductions and your recent changes of cancelling rent assistance at the same time they cancel Centrepay has been a good policy outcome for both landlord and Centrelink budgets.

    However it appears now some people are not cancelling rent until well after vacating so as to get the Rent Assistance for an extra period or more and then expect the landlord to co-operate with their intentional fraud.

    As Centrelink fraud department has previously advised its not their job to police these types issues, can you please advise what your Centrelink policy provides for in such cases.
