Reply To: Providing information to the Rent Service post April 2008


Our local Rent Officer has told us that, according to latest guidance from his HQ, the law doesn’t exclude his consideration of rents where the tenant
is receiving HB/LHA but it does require the rent officer to exercise caution and only exclude rents where the fact that the tenant is in receipt of HB has influenced the level of rent charged by the landlord.

All very confusing.
