Important - Welfare Reform

The government is proposing a number of changes to benefits that may affect how your benefits are worked out. For example, if you bid on a property that is too big for your needs, your Housing Benefit is likely to be reduced and you will need to pay the difference.

For further information navigate to Important Changes . This will take you to information about Welfare Reform on the Birmingham City Council website. It is important that you read this information and take this into consideration before you make a bid.

If you need any further information about Welfare Reform and how it may affect how you bid please call 0121 675 5779 or contact us via e mail
