Local Housing Allowance

Local housing allowance (LHA) is used to work out how much housing benefit you can get if you rent your home from a private landlord. 

You can visit Shelter's dedicated page for more details on Local Housing Allowance.

Shelter - LHA

You can calculate how many bedrooms your household would qualify for by using the bedroom caluclator on the LHA website.

You can find out how much the allowance is in your area by using the LHA search tool.
