It's not a tax. It's a reduction in housing benefit for people who get it and are judged to be living in a house that is too big for their needs, therefore the government has decided it doesn't want to pay the whole rent. So if you're not getting housing benefit, it doesn't apply. Certainly if you've paid off the mortgage, you don't have any housing costs and won't be getting it.

No. If they live there they won't be getting housing benefits; and if they rent out the house and live elsewhere, the rent the will receive is whatever rent they charge (how the tenant pays it is not the landlord's concern).

the so called "tax" is for people on benefits, ie. where the local council pay their rent and or other benefits and the occupants are not using all the bedrooms because the accommodation is under occupied, ie. not enough people live in the property.
