Not yet, what is crazy though is that it only effects council or housing association home tenants? So if you have lived in a council house for years and kids have left home you are doomed.

However if you have just moved in as a couple to a private landlord (who are normally 10% more expensive) have spare bedrooms and still claim Housing & Council Tax benefit it seems you are ok.

Crazy messed up idea with good intentions but not thought out.

2 different homes near me both have at least 1 disabled person in the couple, home adapted for the disabilities so they can stay in family home, both have grown up kids now left, both have 2 rooms that will be part of this bedroom tax. One of these has lived in the home for 37 years and it's a disgrace that now they may well be forced out.

withthat
and farther reading looks like its also going to have a knock on effect for builders/landlords as there are a lot of single people who will only need 1 bed properties and not many builders build 1 beds, its going to cause a lot of debts and homelessness for people already struggling

what about all the animals that may need re homing due to their owners being forced into one bed flats, where animals aren't allowed?

I'm stumped as to why this Tax does not apply to Private Accomodation. It's madness.

this tax should apply to all types of properties private or social housing, its not fair as it is.

well they reckon your best down sizing now as come april 2013 there will be a rush for one bed places

one person in a two bed property will have to pay aprox 14-16pw out of 67.50 so they'll have 50ish to pay all domestic bills, most peeps cant afford to put heating on as it is

I was listening to a conversation on the radio about this with mixed views.

If your over 60 you may be excluded.
But a guy who was worried about his 2 bed living on his own was worried because his spare room was full of crap he couldn't possibly down size to a one bed.

But what did come out of it was that it's still not in stone all the rules nor exactly what the bedroom tax would be.
And the callers were advised to call there housing associations for the latest updates.

Not much help, but there will be winners and losers with all the changes.

i live in a house that was built over 100yrs ago and it wasnt designed to house all the things that we have/need in the modern world so my spare room has my big old pc and printer in it as well as my drier. bedding and some kitchen equipment etc as the downstairs rooms are tiny!
