Under-occupation and the Housing Benefit Reforms: Four local case studies - Summary

last modified Mar 04, 2014 11:53 AM
This report and summary were commissioned by the Housing Futures Network in January 2012 looking at the impact of the proposed Housing Benefit reforms for under-occupying social tenants in four local case study areas.


The proposed cuts to Housing Benefit for working age tenants will reduce payments by an average of £13 a week from April 2013. The four local neighbourhoods (in the Wirral, Sunderland, Lewisham and Chorley) were chosed to explore in more detail the ways in which these cuts may play out on a local scale, and the ways in which tenants and social landlords may respond.
