Reply To: LHA and advantageous changes


Just following on from this discussion, I am expecting more than a few previously undeclared non-dependants to emerge where there is a break in claim followed by a new claim or when an existing tenant moves address, both of which would give a positive incentive for their declaration in terms of a bigger LHA, especially since LHAs will be in the public domain. If we are faced with retrospective calculations for such undeclared non-deps in private tenant claims for periods prior to April then presumably we must refer the case back to the Rent Officer to obtain a revised retrospective Claim Related Rent and LRR as any increase will be part of the underlying entitlement used to offset the introduction retrospectively of a non-dep deduction.Any views?
