Welfare reform: How landlords are preparing


Welfare reform: How landlords are preparing


In February 2013, House Exchange (part of Circle Housing) and the CIH came together to design and carry out a survey of how social landlords across Britain are preparing to meet the challenges posed by welfare reform in general and the under occupation penalty (or 'bedroom tax') in particular. This report summarises the survey's key findings.
