Local Housing Allowance (LHA) rates applicable from April 2013

"The April 2013 LHA rates are set out below.

Please note, the LHA rates currently published on LHA-Direct will continue to be effective until 31st March 2013.

Any policy enquiries should be directed to the Department for Work and Pensions."

LHA in 2013/14 – the final straw for the benefit claimant and homelessness through the roof!
"LHA is going up by 2.2% we were told and after 2012/13 when it has been frozen it attracted little if any attention. Yet the official figures show the actual increase is 0.59% and not 2.2% and in some areas it is being cut by over 7%!!"

No change, here ... will still need to top-up, from my JSA (as I do CT).

Housing benefit to rise less than rate of inflation  

"Payment increases to landlords to be capped at 1% from 2014, while plan to end housing benefits for under-25s is dropped."

Cap on benefits to target 'shirkers, not workers' will worsen poverty, say critics

"Allowing only a 1% rise for the next three years will save the government billions in the face of fierce opposition."
