Agree with Peter. You are not restricted to the RO figure, although it would have an effect on subsidy.

Is the rent 'unreasonable' compared to other providers and is there availability?

If the answer to both those questions is NO, then the claimant would have a good chance of success on appeal. (IMHO)
