I'm stuck with this sentence (clawed back and rebate) and I would really appreciate your help.

letter/report from housing department about rent arrears

I am writing to inform you that the overpayments of housing benefit is being clawed back from your housing benefit rebate at £9.20 per week. Therefore, from now on you should start paying £9.20 per week.

Thank you.
