Housing benefits

22 Dec 2011

From April 2013 Council tenants under occupying their homes will have their housing benefit reduced. This will not apply to Council tenants of pensionable age.

We at the Fed are concerned that some tenants may be forced out of their homes into smaller accommodation as they won’t be able to afford the rent if their housing benefit is reduced.

We don’t know the details yet but when we do we will let you know.
