    Hi i have a 3 bed place, the garage was made into a room, which is part utility, i would say and the other half is child’s room. sounds odd, but it works for us for now, just the back half has cupboards in it so the whole family literally have to walk in to get shoes/coats/washing! When form filling what do i or should i class my place as 3 bed, or 4? 2 girls and 1 boy so girls could share if need be. dont want to get it wrong.

    Does anyone know how long housing benefit take to kick in, and taxcredits, some places says 10 day to 4 weeks. or does it depend from area to area. Thanks

    It would depend whether the room transformation was done via planning permission and meeting regulation standards etc or done on the quiet. The latter would mean it is not a bedroom.

    Google planning applications for your address. Then you’ll know.

    To be classed as a bedroom it needs four walls and at least one full sized window (in roof conversions this is usually a skylight, but it has to be the right size.
