Housing/Council tax Interview under caution?

Housing/Council tax Interview under caution?

I've been called for an interview under caution, I have been unemployed for two years, Im almost bankrupt but I do owe a property that i rent out as can't afford the mortgage neither can i afford to live in it. I was claiming housing benefit in a property i was renting and they found out and even though i have no money of my own, only debts apparently i was not entitled to any HB since the house i owe (the bank really) is considered an asset. I don't make any money in the rent.

Anyway, can someone give me some advice? shall i tell them this at the interview or just call them, admit i owe a property and pay back all the money they gave me, i DON'T WANT TO PAY A PENALTY OR GET A FORMAL CAUTION BUT TRULY DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO, IF I PAY BACK IT WOULD HAVE TO BE IN installments as im totally broke. I jut claimed for 6 months and just when i signed off a week ago, i got a letter from them. I stopped all my benefits but them the letter come and now i feel lost, please only helpful advise

Update:

i got the wrong reply so just to clarify. I owe a property but i was claiming housing benefit on the property that i live, it does not belong to me, i pay rent to a private landlord, as i could not afford to live in this property neither in the one that i owe , i claimed housing benefit, that is all. No answers telling me about benefit cheat and all that... only helpful advise please regards the interview under caution

    How could you think you would be entitled to HB on a house you own that you let out to tenants?

    Nobody will believe you did not know this. The rent you get is your income, and the total rent is probably more than somebody in an ordinary job gets paid who can't get HB.

    HB applications are checked very strictly and so it is unlikely you were truthful on the form.

    A court summons is very likely as you are now legally classed as a benefit cheat.

    HB is for people living in the property they are claiming for and earning nothing from it

    it particularly is practically a troll question, isn't it? because of the certainty in certainty, the utmost federal sales tax rates throughout a brilliant style of Reagan's years as against paintings have been an prolonged way extra effective than they are under Obama. below Obama, the conventional US earnings tax value is the absolute backside that it particularly is been because of the certainty in the previous worldwide conflict II. the ideal sales tax value for the super-wealthy is now set at in simple terms 35 share, working example, while it exchange into as quickly as at 39 p.c. as no longer too before because of the fact the 365 days 2000, bill Clinton's final 365 days in place of work. what's extra effective, many or most of the wealthiest US taxpayers are being taxed at an amazing value of roughly 13.9 share, on the comparable time their severe theoretical value is easiest 15%, thinking they get maximum of their earnings in this variety of "capital solid factors" from the finding out to purchase and advertising of shares, bonds and assets. If usa of america went returned to the gross sales tax shape that we had below Reagan, taxes on the excellent-wealthy might upward thrust. So might taxes on a brilliant style of the U.S. middle form. thank you for the 1st-fee professional-Obama softball question. it is first-fee liberal trolling!
