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 properties.

LHA rate will be the same amount wherever you live in your area. They will publish the LHA rates monthly from April 2008.
