I thought I'd share that I received a letter from my local council telling me I under occupy my house therefore my HB will be cut by 14% from 1/4/13
I emailed them explaining I have a room, my daughter has a room and the small room is used by my carer 5 times a week which I pay for out of my full DLA ( as the council cut my care last year )
They emailed back saying there is NO provision to provide a room for an overnight carer.
I then replied saying oh yes there is, it states clearly on the governments own website.
They replied saying I've read it wrong so I copied and pasted it and I'm now waiting for a reply on that!!
Anyone else encountering this kind of thing?
Hope everyone's well in this horrible damp weather
