Chris: that makes it less of a problem in your case, because both elements of the eligible rent fall to be calculated under the same Reg, which is Reg 12(3)(a) pre-LHA and Reg 12C post-LHA. There is a real difficulty where one part is a rebate under Reg 12(3)(b)/Reg 12B and the other part is an allowance under Rerg 12(3)(a)/Reg 12C.

Whether it’s rebate and allowance or all allowance, I still think it would help if Reg 80(9) could actively say that two amounts of eligible rent are acceptable in cases of this type, just as it currently says for Reg 7(6) cases.
