When Is A Bedroom Not A Bedroom?

Recommended Posts

Would it be subject to the bedroom tax I wonder?

The legislation on under-occupation doesn't actually define what a bedroom is. The landlord gets to define what is a bedroom (hence all those houses where one of two reception rooms is rented as a bedroom).

However, I think you could probably argue against any landlord's definition of the ante-room being a bedroom, in this case.

So bedroom three does not have it's own door, and has to be passed through to get to bedroom two.

Blimey, nothing unusual in that.

Lived a fair bit of my childhood in a 'bedroom' like that. And I've viewed HMO 'rooms' like that: turn up looking for somewhere to live, and get presented with a bed squeezed into what is effectively a bit of corridor which also serves as access to some stranger's bedroom.

Some very nice houses with pass-through rooms for various reasons (here, for instance).

Viewed a house yesterday. All the dormer windows had a window seat underneath. "It's the rules," they said. "All new houses have to have something for you to stand on so that the firemen can get you out". Presumably, the fact that it gives small kids a way to climb out of windows is less important than rescue workers with dodgy backs.

Not that unusual in older homes.....often they made one bed into an upstairs bathroom or else the loo stays downstairs behind the kitchen....it is not how many bedrooms but how big the bedrooms are.......nowadays the bedrooms are the size of small bathrooms...sometimes there are far too many loos for comfort...less rooms, more space. ;)

Probably because people these days are heavier?
