Too right!!

My two sons have said that when the youngest moves out (soon), they will be taking it in turns to stay at weekends and a friend has said he will stop over in the middle of the week. That relieved me so much as one thing I fear most is living alone. I suffer a lot of pain due to early onset arthritis asthma and F/M. I collapse due to the pain quite frequently, go into shock and often at nights suffer panic attacks. Living alone will be very difficult so having someone here atleast four nights a week will help a great deal.

How dare the government take that choice away from me. I would have to move to a one bedroom flat or bungalow to avoid the tax so won't be able to have them stay. I will spend the rest of my life alone.

But what if I can't move from my two bedroom house, if all the onebed places are taken up??? And why should I move anyway? I don't live in a mansion, The second room is very small, it's not like I'll be a single woman in a three or four bedroom place like some. I fought like hell to get adequate housing as it is.

Why are the government so cruel? They are looking in the wrong places to make money.

Flash, if your spare bedroom is less than 70 square feet then it is classed as a box room according to the 1985 housing act. Which is still law and cannot be changed over night. Knowledge is Power, know your rights. Box rooms under 70sq ft cannot be subject to the under occupancy or 'bedroom tax'

I'll have to look into that, out with the tape measure. The council consider the room a bedroom though, so I expect it's just with in guidelines knowing them. Thanks Ajay XX

Anyone claiming housing benefit who has an empty bedroom/s is under threat of losing a percentage of their benefit per room (in a nutshell) its all very complicated but when isnt it :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes: :yikes:

Summerbaby I have removed the duplicate post you had made in politics as it becomes confusing and is actually against forum rules (see basic rules for membership)
