    can you please clarify as i am getting very confused….if a claimant satisfies the size criteria for 3 bed property, but decides to live in a 2 bed property. is the LHA calc on a 3 bed, giving the claimant the choice of deciding where to live? this is what i thought ,but i got confused as the regs say a single person over 25 gets a 1 bed rate as long as they are not living in a shared accomodation. if they are they only get the shared room rate. doesnt this conflict?

    They’d get the 3 bed rate, or their actual rental liability plus the cap of £15 – whichever is less

    The conflict that you mention is only in the case of a room being in shared accommodation – as David has posted, the rest are down to entitlement and not the actual accommodation 8)
