I have a couple of questions I'd like answering..... if folk are now goin to be charged for so called spare bedrooms, does that mean families living in over-crowded conditions are goin to get a rebate? and just where are they goin to rehouse all the folk that currently live in 2 bed properties, but r only using 1 bedroom... as far I i am aware there isn't an abundance of 1 bedroomed properties waiting to be occupied!

Over the last 20+years a vast fortune has been paid out in housing benefits to those renting non-council properties that rents are way more expensive than council rents, and penalising those in council properties, whose personal circumstances may have changed, either through divorce/bereavement etc, is unfair through no fault of their own. The idea of people renting out rooms to strangers to me, has alarm bells ringing, as unless you really know someone, you don't know what sort of paying...

What successive governments should've done and failed is to have replaced social housing stock, sold under the right to buy scheme, which for many was a good thing, as it gave been the chance to themselves onto the property ladder owning their own home. By building new properties would have created jobs and brought in income tax & national insurance revenue that would've gone to health, education, etc.

The goverment are telling people to take a lodger or borrow the money from relatives to pay the extra rent!!!!!! Tell me who in their right minds with children would take in a stranger!!!!!! they are targeting the wrong people many of whom are disabled and vunerable. we should all refuse to pay !!!!

I'll sign any petition against this but this particular email petition is doomed to failure as it's addressed to David Cameron wrongly at the House of Lords, so they'll just ignore it. If you re-run the petition directing it to David Cameron at the House of Commons instead, they might notice it. He and his cabinet confederates may look and sound like lords, and have lordly influence, but they've got to be commoners to be MPs as far as I know.

they are making it so you can't own the home you want what happens when you have more kids gotta move house instead of having the house you want and then having a family its just wrong they want you to rent instead of buying bastards.
