Post Bedroom Tax: Plea for advice.
Recently our daughter left home and we became trapped by the dreaded Bedroom Tax. I have wanted a private place of worship and now I can, and with my being an ordained minister wondered if I can use my religious standing to make the Bedroom Tax null and void ? Its a long shot, but one worth firing.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Peace,
Lenny

Hi Lannah, the links below might help. I know from my own involvement in campaigns (in the community and through my Trade Union work) there are so many people being hit by this cruel act. The annoying thing is it is being implemented by those who have large properties with a plethora of spare bedrooms. They fail to recognise some people need an extra room for things such as visiting families and for health reasons.

Oh my goodness! I cannot even believe this is for real!
But I guess it is tied to the lack of space that is an issue in Europe!!
Not here.
Here everyone who can tries to have a "guest room".
Friends and family are always welcomed and need a place to sleep. And you are not going to but dear old mom, who is 73 on the living room couch!

This is an Ouch!

I hate the bedroom tax. I understand if you live in Scotland one can say goodbye to it.
There is not enough new housing being built. There is not enough rented accommodation and most private renters do it to get boarders to pay their mortgage. This government has time after time shown it has no conscience on the disabled and the bedroom tax is just one example of this. I would not be surprised if they brought back the work houses again. Slave labour for a roof above your head.

If you leave the room empty, you have to pay a tax on that space.

If you rent it out to someone, what happens? Is it considered being properly used?

The issue came around because some disabled people needed another room to put up their carer. The government does not want to support this.
