Coventry council apologises to families told they could not appeal against the bedroom tax!
Coventry City Council has apologised for wrongly telling tenants they could not appeal against the bedroom tax after we challenged them!
Every tenant has the absolute right to appeal. How many vulnerable tenants have believed the council and not appealed? This is an outrage. In giving out this incorrect information – like other councils who have adopted this unlawful strategy of misinformation – many tenants will not have appealed, and may have missed the deadline for an ‘in-time’ appeal.
The only solution is for the council to extend the appeals deadline for all tenants.
