Brent doubles “bedroom tax” incentive

LB Brent has increased the amount of money offered to help tenants move from properties with more bedrooms than they need.

Such tenants will be impacted by the government’s new rules on housing benefit payments for those with unused bedrooms in their homes.

Householders living in council properties will now be given £2,000 for each bedroom they give up if they move to a smaller property.

The maximum payment allowed is £6,000.

In addition to the cash paymentsBrent are also offering help with packing and up to £500 for removal costs.
