Stuck between a Rock and a Hard Place

Housing tenants who are affected by the Bedroom Tax are still facing an impossible choice, according to a report released by Grand Union Housing Group.

The report which looks at the impact on tenants of the Group's subsidiaries Aragon Housing Association and South Northants Homes, reveals there is a desperate shortage of two bedroom homes, those most in demand by customers.

It also reveals that arrears among those affected have gone up by over 20% as tenants face increased hardship and struggle to find the shortfall.

The report suggests that the savings on the Housing Benefit bill may not be what the Government had anticipated and that the letting of three bedroom properties in some areas may now be becoming problematic.

It follows on from Aragon's '100 days' report earlier this year.
