Current LHA rent levels

Local Housing Allowance weekly rates effective from 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2023

Please note: LHA rates were frozen at their 2021-22 levels. These will now remain in place until 31st March 2023. 

Your rate of LHA depends on the number of bedrooms in your home, and on which of the eight Broad Rental Market Areas (BRMAs) your home is located.

More information is available on How we calculate LHA rent levels.
