New guide for challenging bedroom tax

15 Apr 2013

Govan Law Centre have produced a toolkit to challenge decisions about the 'bedroom tax'.  If you have received a letter about changes to your housing benefit, you have one month to challenge the decision.

The bedroom tax affects people who receive housing benefit, who live in social housing and who have more bedrooms than they need, according to the Government's new rules.

 You can download the Toolkit here (no longer available).  To download it, you will need to enter some basic information about yourself.

The toolkit contains some possible ways to argue that the decision that you have too many bedrooms is wrong, and includes a form to send back to your local authority.
