TV Licence Residential Care

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, British Broadcasting Corporation should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

In Residential Care providing you meet the condititions residents qualify for a £7-50 yearly tv licence.i live in independant/assisted living we meet all the criteria except we have two guest rooms instead of one.
Under licencing rules guest rooms have to pay a full tv licence regardless .
What i would like you to explain to me is how having a extra guest room which has to pay a full tv licence impacts on residents not being allowed the reduced tv licence in residential care.
Also bearing in mind that a block with minimum of four units can have the reduced licence if meet requirements and we have 82 flats in two blocks so obviously need more than one guest room as more than one occupant could need to use it at any time.

Yours faithfully,
Joyce Lawrence
