    in February I did a manual calcualtion on a crown property to confirm the level of benefit the customer would have been entitled to had they been entitled to Housing Benefit.

    I have now been asked by the landlord to look at the calcualtion again as the rent has increased and the tenant has not paid the shortfall.

    My question is do I have to wait a year before doing the manual notional entitlement calculation (as if they were entitled to benefit they would have to wait for the aniversary date?


    As the crown tenant scheme doesn’t fall under HB and therefore not subject to any LHA rules then I can’t see any problem with re-calculating it using the increased rent.
