Local Housing Allowance (LHA) rates for Bridgend

 

April 2016 to March 2017

 

Important Changes to Local Housing Allowance

 

Due to Welfare Reform LHA allowances will be held at 2015 rates unless there is a reduction with the CPI figure.    

   

This means that from April 2015 all LHA rates will be set annually at the lower of:

 

  • The previous      LHA rate uprated by the previous September’s CPI or
  • The 30th percentile of      local market rents in the previous September.
