Bedroom Tax

Changes to the role on how many bedrooms you are allowed

From April 2013 a rule on the number of bedrooms you are allowed was introduced to housing benefit and universal credit for working age people renting from a local authority, a registered housing association or other registered social landlord. Currently it is down to individual councils to determine whether your child can or cannot share a bedroom and the effect this would have on any resulting bedroom tax. This link will hopefully go some way to explain the current legislation as it is currently be disputed further within the government http://www.disabilityrightsuk.org/bedroom-tax
