Local Housing Allowance (Housing Benefits) rents now on-line

Posted by markharrison on May 28, 2008

Many landlords have been suspicious of the transition from Housing Benefits to Local Housing Allowance (LHA), however one benefit that HAS come is the greater transparency that is now possible.
The Government’s rent service is now publishing the LHA figures that councils will pay for benefits tenants online. You can search by postcode at:

Please remember that the LHA isn’t what you’ll receive – it’s what the TENANT will get as a housing allowance.

Sadly, the website seems to crash a bit, and isn’t entirely reliable, but at least it shows willing.
