“Bedroom tax”: an update on challenges

an article by Fiona Seymour published in Adviser: a guide to benefits, housing, employment, consumer and money advice Number 164 (July/August 2014)

The “social sector under-occupancy charge”, the “bedroom tax” or the “removal of the spare room subsidy” – whatever you call it, it has made headlines for many reasons since its introduction in April 2013. Fiona Seymour considers the issues it raises and highlights the ongoing challenges.

NOTE: This article applies in England and Wales only.

And, as luck would have it, Citizens Advice have chosen this as one of their sample articles which is available as a PDF.

I don't know how long it will be available.
