Landlords can now view the 2014/15 Local Housing Allowance (LHA) rates for every local authority, thanks to the Residential Landlords’ Association.
The RLA guide explains what LHA is, and a table is provided to outline the housing benefit rates that landlords can expect for the forthcoming financial year for tenants in receipt of them.
The rates come into effect on the 1st April 2014.[button href=”http://www.rla.org.uk/landlord/guides/local_housing_allowance_rates.shtml” align=”left”]Read the guide now[/button]
Contrary to a recent private landlord coming out and claiming that they would be dropping their housing benefit tenants, the RLA is committed to providing private landlords with the tools and expertise it takes to support these potentially vulnerable tenants.
Housing benefit expert and RLA consultant, Bill Irvine, has written a series of articles and guides to help provide landlords with peace of mind that renting accommodation to benefit tenants can be a rewarding and mutually beneficial arrangement.
