    I was told by the housing association that I rent from that housing benefit is awarded on the number of bedrooms your tenancy agreement says the property has, adding that the 50 or 70 sq ft ruling is a fallacy and would therefore not reclassify the number of bedrooms the house that I rent has for bedroom tax purposes.

      It isn’t a fallacy. I believe the relevant piece of legislation was looked up a short while ago. I might even have it in an article on this blog. Look up Vox Political bedroom tax and see what the articles say.

        Even if it was shoved under the councils/landlords noses in black and white they would still refute it, it would mean landlords or home sellers losing out if they had to downgrade a three bedroom house to a two bedroom house because of bedroom sizes.

    It is not true about the size of the room, we have asked so many people, if you can prove show it
