Local Housing Allowance (LHA)

From April 2011, Local Housing Allowance has been capped. Private rents in this borough are very high. Most rents in the borough are above the cap, and therefore the Housing Benefit that you can get will not cover the rent.

Even if you find a property that you think you can afford, you should still use the information on these pages to check which Local Housing Allowance applies to you. The amount of your Local Housing Allowance will depend on the number of people who live with you and where you live.
