    We have a claim where the tenant is in a joint tenancy of a 3 bedroom property and they only need 1 bedroom, however how do we find out how many bedrooms their joint tenant requires?  Can we ask their joint tenant for this information and even then, how do we know they are telling the truth about the number of rooms they require?

    You don’t do it like that. If there are two occupants they need two rooms = 14% reduction. You may need to know the family make up (if the joint tenant is not a single person) but surely the clt can provide that information.

    And would you just take the claimants word for it?

    It’s as good as anything else, although having said that the RP may know. At least the clt has signed to say they are telling the truth 🙂
