The Bedroom Tax loophole
Yes that’s got your attention hasn’t it reader! And its correct there is a huge issue that can be termed a loophole in the bedroom tax decision making process – it’s the Rent Officer service.This loophole gives all 660,000 a very powerful argument and ground of formal appeal to have their bedroom tax decisions quashed and their respective councils will all have to go back and do the decision again and properly this time. If that’s correct this may mean local government is hit with a bill of over a billion pounds. More importantly it means none of the bedroom tax decisions made can be relied upon in law and they should all be thrown out for that reason especially given the dire financial consequences the bedroom tax decision holds for each tenant household.
