Reply To: LHA rate


Thank you for your response.

That is the way we have always worked it, and how our software system calculates it.

However, I was referred to the shelter ‘Guide to housing Benefit’ book which advises to apportion the rent after calculating the lowest of the actual rent or LHA rate. The same calculation appears in prior editions of the book also – it just concerns me to think that something that should be quite straightforward would be incorrect in such a publication.
