    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone would know the answer to the following as we are a little confused here.

    After using LHA for over a year now i’m getting a little rusty on inputing rent officer decision.

    If you receive a rent increase within the 52 weeks of the previous rent officer decision. When the new 52 weeks rent officer decision is received can we take it back to when the rent increase was implemented or does it only take effect from the 52 week date.

    The other thing we are a little confused on is what is the difference between contractual and non contractual rent. i.e if someones rent increase’s at the same time each year does this mean this is a contractual rent or does this need to be written into the tenancy agreement.

    I think you mean a non-contractual rent increase, as long as there has been no size, high rent determination on the previous ROD and the details of the increase are based on the same conditions of the original agreement, in my view without the need of a contractual rent increase included in the original agreement, then entitlement should be amended from the date of the increase based on the ROD.

    This thread should be of use.
