Reply To: Appeal – Strange situation!


I’ve got a claim similar to the one above. We have a landlord who we believe is renting his properties through a charity so that he can receive direct payments and also potentially receive an amount higher than LHA.

The contractual rent for the property is £550 pm – but due to the state of this area the ROD is always in the region of £325 pm.

The tenant has a 2 year old child, does this mean that we cannot restrict the rent to the ROD figure as she is in a vulnerable group?
