English term or phrase: charges (in this context)
letter/report from housing department about rent arrears

Your current charge and arrear is being paid by direct payments from the Benefits Agency. As we are unable to request payment of overpayments of housing benefit I must advise you to start making the payment mentioned above (£9.20 per week)

I think charges here refers to the rent but I'm not sure.
Thank you
