LHA for single people under 35 years
- Room suitable for living in
A severely disabled person under 35 years and a care leaver under 22 years will be entitled to the Local Housing Allowance rate for a one bedroom self-contained property, provided they rent a property of at least that size. For those who qualify for a severe disability premium, they will qualify for the one room rate regardless of the size of their accommodation.
More information regarding these rules and the changes that came into effect from 1 January 2012 can be found in our Changes for people aged under 35 leaflet
