    Hi

    Can anyone help please. We have a claim from a customer who is living in a multi occ dwelling the landlord has let out all the available rooms so is temporarily renting out the living room in the house. Can I pay HB on the living room?

    Many thanks

    If your claimant has exclusive occupation of the sitting room I see no reason why he can’t get the LHA shared room rate.

    I would agree provided there is a genuine liability. If the landlord has already let out the property to other tenants and this specifically included the living room, then that might be an issue (even if an HMO).
