Summary of the Affordable Homes Bill 2014-15

This Bill has two distinct aims:

  • to introduce three new exemptions to the application of the under-occupation deduction from Housing Benefit (or the housing element of Universal Credit) for claimants who are deemed to be under-occupying their social rented homes
