20/10/2014

Could the council consider a tenants eviction due to arrears where s/he is affected by the bedroom tax (be it council housing or a registered social landlord) to be evidence that the tenant made him/herself intentionally homeless Regarding question 1 of this request - while councils would have to prove 'intentional homelessness' on a case-by-case basis, this question is asking whether the council would regard such eviction as evidence of intentional homelessness, subject to proof. It is a question of policy

Please provide any correspondence or information received by the council from registered social landlords since 1st April 2013 (or collected independently by the council) regarding the impact of the bedroom tax on rent arrears among tenants of any registered social landlord(s). Any such correspondence would probably have been sent to the councils Revenue and Benefits department, or to the councils Housing department. This excludes information pertaining to or identifying individual tenants/households Regarding question 2 of this request - if the councils view is that to locate any such correspondence or information would exceed the section 12 cost limit, please state under section 1 of the Freedom of Information Act that the information is not held and respond to the remainder of the request, rather than applying section 12 to the entire request
3.

6. Please state the number of households in council housing in the local authority area that are affected by the 'bedroom tax' against which the council has commenced eviction proceedings (a) between 1st April 2013 and 30th April 2013; (b) since 1st May 2013, due to unpaid (or late-paid) rent. If the date breakdown in (a) and (b) is not available, please just provide data since 1st April 2013 Regarding question 6 of this request - if the council is unable to calculate the number of eviction proceedings that have commenced specifically on the grounds of unpaid rent, please provide a figure for all eviction proceedings that have commenced against households affected by the `bedroom tax' since 1st May 2013. Also regarding question 6 - `commencing eviction proceedings' means the initiation of formal eviction proceedings. For example: the sending of a notice seeking possession for English and Welsh secure tenancies; the sending of a notice of proceedings for Scottish tenancies, etc. The sending of notice should generally be considered to be the commencing of eviction proceedings for the purposes of this request
