    Which LHA rule to apply here please:

    Joint tenants in property – one with a dependant, the other single and both sharing a non dep – do we apply 2 bed rate to both or proportion the rent 60/40?

    I thought the 2 bed approach would apply but my colleagues are unsure and think the 60/40 would override the 2 bed…

    Thanks in advance

    I would say that the J/T with the dependant is entitled to the 3-bedroom rate and the other one is entitled to the 2 bedroom rate. Shared non-deps are added to the size criteria for every J/T who is “sharing” them.

    You would then have to apply the cap according to either their stated shares of the total rent, or to something else you think is more appropriate.
