From April 2012 Local Housing Allowance rates will ‘freeze’. This means Local Housing Allowance rates will no longer be published each month. Instead any new claims, changes or your next LHA review will use the April 2012 rates. New rates will be published in April 2013 (based on September’s 2012 Consumer Price Index figure).
When you are calculating monthly payments please remember that these figures are for weekly rent, therefore you may see a discrepancy if you ask your tenant for monthly payments. (LHA is paid four weekly in arrears).
