Warning to 1,000 tenants of North Lincolnshire Homes who will be affected by new bedroom tax
NORTH Lincolnshire Homes has issued a warning to more than 1,000 tenants who have so far refused help.
The social landlord sent letters offering help to all under-occupiers who will be affected by the Government's new bedroom tax.
Around 500 have replied so far but 1,000 tenants have still not responded.
Lettings project officer Sam Gilbert said: "We are encouraged that 500 tenants have chosen to get in touch and seek help but are worried that some may be burying their heads in the sand.

"If tenants are struggling to pay their rent now, come April things will become more difficult."
To tackle the difficulties, North Lincolnshire Homes has set up a new financial inclusion team (FIT).
It has also commissioned a video for tenants explaining about the changes.
