The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has defended their decision to implement a bedroom tax, but acknowledge that there are circumstances where some tenants should be exempt.
They told ITV News London that councils do have a discretionary fund to give to people who are "vulnerable" which is usually people who need a spare bedroom for a carer to stay or to store medical equipment.
They advised Tania to apply to the council and see if she qualifies as "vulnerable".
We are giving councils an extra £155m this year so that they can help their vulnerable tenants. It's only right that we bring fairness back to the system - when in England alone there are nearly 2 million households on the social housing waiting list and over a quarter of a million tenants are living in overcrowded homes.
