Hi there,

I wonder if anyone can point me to the bit of law that allows an extra bedroom for a couple who can’t share a bedroom due to disability.

CPAG p96 directs me to Reg 2 and Sch 4 paras 2 & 12 UC regs but I’ve looked at these regs and can’t find any mention of the above scenario. Specifically para 12 is concerned with an additional room where the renter requires overnight care but that doesn’t cover it.

Thanks in advance.

If you are looking at the Regs on legislation.gov.uk, the HTML version has not yet been updated to include these amendments.  But if you choose the most recent PDF from the “more resources” sidebar you will find the amendments consolidated into Schedule 4.
