Bedroom tax pushes 72,000 into rent arrears

Housing benefit changes 'unworkable'

Two-thirds - 66% - of social sector tenants affected by benefit cuts for those with extra bedrooms were behind with rent after six months, a National Housing Federation survey suggests. And it said 38% were in debt because of the "unfair, unworkable" policy change - dubbed the "bedroom tax" by critics. ... The NHF said the equivalent of 72,00 housing association tenants were in rent arrears because of the policy. It said that, by October 2013, 15% of household affected by the cuts had received letters warning them they were in danger of being evicted.

One thought on “Bedroom tax pushes 72,000 into rent arrears

  • More than one in ten prosecutions in the UK in 2012 were due to the BBC grabbing their pound of flesh. Please say this to everybody you know. The BBC took over 180,000 people to court in a single year to get their money, which doesn’t even go to programmes, just their handouts and the guaranteed home buying scheme at the height of the propery bubble. The staff at the BBC, when the move to Manchester was announced, had their home prices locked in stone. I am not particularly into conspiracy memes, but there doesn’t seem to be much mention of this that is still available. The BBC guaranteed the house prices of their own staff.

    This is the link about their carefree prosecutions of the people.

    Close the BBC. Its outdated, nobody watches it and corrupt.
