If you have a spare bedroom and you are renting a council or housing association property, then your Housing Benefit may be reduced. This is sometimes referred to as the ‘Bedroom Tax’, the ‘under-occupation penalty’ or the ‘removal of the spare room subsidy’.
If you are affected, your Housing Benefit (or the housing element of Universal Credit) is cut by the following percentage:
- 14% for one extra bedroom
- 25% for two or more extra bedrooms
You can find more information about the bedroom tax in this government guide.
