    All local Authorities have their own rules for ages with bungalows. In my area because I live with my daughter and I'm single I have to be 60 for a 2 bedroom bungalow. If I was single and lived alone I would need to be 55 for a 1 bedroom bungalow. 

    I don't think it has anything to do with your rights due to the shortage of bungalows across the country. 
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    That’s because you don’t qualify for a 2 bedroom bungalow.
