“A joint tenant gets the shared rate, unless they need two beds (if for example they have a non dep) in which case they get 2 bedrooms”.

May I just point out that this is DWP opinion and not necessarily the law. It is up to each LA to decide if joint tenants are entitled to the shared rate or one bedroom rate.
