    Hi all, If percentage of rent charged changes on LHA claims, i.e. joint tenant 50% to 100% is the rent updated from date of change and the LHA date updated from date of change or is the original date used?

    Thank you

    If the HB prior to the change was based on the shared facilities rate (and would now be self-contained), then there is no problem setting a new LHA rate under HBR 13C (2)(d)(i).
    If not, I can’t see a way of invoking a new LHA determination. Seems harsh though, so I’d be happy to be wrong if anyone else has any bright ideas!

    Agree with Andy, if no change in the Category of Dwelling no grounds to change the LHA Rate. Having said that, I would be surprised if one of the ‘exclusive use’ limbs of the regs didn’t apply.
