Exemption is probably the wrong word.One single claimant or a couple living in a two bedroom property, who would normally only qualify for a 1 bedroom rate, can apply for an extra bedroom entitlement. But there are requirements that would need to be met to qualify for the extra bedroom entitlement. If a claimant is in receipt of a disability benefit such as PIP and they needed a carer who does not live with them, to provide regular overnight care, then an extra bedroom entitlement could be added. For a couple, where one of the couple has a proven health condition that makes it very difficult to share a bedroom, a Decision Maker could upon receipt of sufficient evidence award an extra bedroom entitlement.See F3131 onwards in the following linkhttps://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/890313/admf3.pdf
