How is the LHA rate calculated
Each Council will be divided into areas called Broad
Rental Market Areas (BRMAs).
The Rent Service will be responsible for calculating the LHA for
each BRMA, which will be based on the average rent for that area
depending on the rooms in the property.
They will calculate the LHA rates are based on the 30th
Percentile of market rents i.e. the 3rd most expensive out of 10
LHA rate will be the same amount wherever you live in
your area. They will publish the LHA rates monthly from April
