Bedroom Tax £186

Recommended Posts

OK, I've signed the documents, paid the money. I'm moving house, and I'll have one more bedroom.

A spare room. Gosh, I must be rich!

The rent on the new place is £186/month higher than on the old place. So I conclude that the bedroom tax in the self-financing private sector is £186/month. And I expect London folks will consider that incredibly cheap!

Of course the £186 has to be paid out of heavily-taxed income, too. Must be a tax on a tax.

Yes, although a fairly hefty tax, you've almost been taxed lightly in London terms. My bedroom tax is around £400pm upwards for that extra bedroom.

Gosh, my total rent is only £82 per month more. B)

must be hard to justify paying £186 a month for a room you don't use. Can't you get government money to pay the extra?
