Following the last post regarding the "bedroom tax" exemption from those who have been in continuous receipt of housing benefit since 1996.
This fault in the new legislation will now be corrected. From March 3rd 2014 it will no longer apply.
Go to the link below for more details about this and other legal challenges being pursued against the tax.
Due to drafting problems in the original legislation thousand of people in social housing are unlawfully being subject to the Under Occupancy Charge or "bedroom tax" as it has been labelled.
New rulings mean that if you have been in continuous payment of housing benefit since 1st January 1996 you cannot be charged for under occupancy. This may be particularly important for those families where children may now have grown and left home.
If you are unsure or need help to correct your housing benefit payment please contact our Information and Advice Service.
We are trying to establish what redress those who have already been forced to move without reason.
