Reply To: LHA rent protection – previously on UC


Yes, the starting point is that you are protecting the eligible rent from a previous “HB claim” because a linked person has died, whatever that would be, but it appears no one else is in the household so a 1 bed LHA rate. .

I would think you would end up with the same LHA rate by applying reg 12BA(3)(b) as I can’t see anything else that it could be. So you can’t get to the full £164.24 as far as I can see.
