Indicative Local Housing Allowance Rates for 2024-25

The Local Housing Allowance (LHA) establishes the upper limit of financial assistance that tenants in the private rental market are eligible for. LHA rates for the fiscal year 2024-25 are set annually by Rent Officers at the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). 

The Chancellor announced in the Autumn Statement that the UK government will increase LHA rates to the 30th percentile of local market rates in April 2024.

The Department for Work and Pensions calculates maximum housing support for Universal Credit or Housing Benefit claimants using LHA rates within Broad Rental Market Areas (BRMAs), with 5 LHA rates per BRMA.

The Rent Officers Orders have been followed in the computation of the indicative LHA rates for the fiscal year 2024–2025.

This includes a nationwide cap for each LHA category and guarantees that no updated LHA rates will be lower than the previous time they were established on March 31, 2020. 

The rates that apply to claimants who receive Housing Benefit or Universal Credit Housing Element total 960 for all BRMA and bedroom categories.
