We have had an accountant friend go over our finances over the weekend as we are thinking about buying our first house (yay!). He discovered that we were not paid rent assistance from Feb 2010 until Feb 2011 even though we were eligible. I don't know how we didn't realise this at the time. He said if we contact centelink with a copy of our lease from that time we should be back paid for the period of time. Does anyone know if this is correct or has too much time passed?
