Local Housing Allowance (LHA) is the maximum amount of Housing Benefit that can be paid to people renting private accommodation (with some exceptions). DirectGov offers an LHA Bedroom Calculator to help with this.

Typically, Housing Benefit under the LHA scheme is paid directly to the tenant. However, payments can be made directly to the landlord if the tenant is vulnerable or is unable or unlikely to pay their rent.

To find out which LHA rate applies to your area and calculate the amount you’re entitled to, visit the rent service website. You can also check the current LHA rates. If you already know your area, you can view rates effective from April 1, 2024.

  1. Multiply the weekly LHA figure by 52 to get the annual amount.Example: £299.18 x 52 = £15,557.36 per year
  2. Divide the annual amount by 12 to find the monthly allowance.Example: £15,557.36 / 12 = £1,296.45 per calendar month

It’s important to note that the specific LHA rate for your household depends on the number of bedrooms required as per LHA regulations and the Broad Rental Market Area (BRMA) where you reside.
