Local Housing Allowance Rates

This page gives information regarding the Local Housing Allowance (LHA) rates. Your Housing Benefit will be calculated based on the rates listed below for the number of bedrooms your household requires.

LHA is a way that claims for Housing Benefit are worked out for tenants renting accommodation from a private landlord. If you live in council accommodation or other social housing, LHA will not affect you.

You can find LHA rates online at the DirectGov website and follow the instructions.
