The way of working out new claims for Housing Benefit for tenants renting accommodation from a private landlord.
Local Housing Allowance is calculated based on the size of the household, view the rates.
We have to make all payments of LHA directly to you, but we can make payments directly to your landlord.
We recommend, if a tenant is starting to build up rent arrears, you should get in touch with us before it gets to eight weeks.
Having another adult who is not your partner living with you can reduce the amount you receive.
