Hello, please can someone explain in plain english the difference between;
LHAR (Local Housing Allowance Rate)which is £110.77 per week for a 2 bedroomed property
LHAL (Local Housing Allowance Limit) which is upto £290.00 per week for a 2 bedroomed property.
I am having a brain block in trying to understand why there are 2 different amounts. :eek:

The LHA is the maximum that can be paid on a property of a certain type ie two bed property.

At the moment i am sleeping on a friends sofa but am hoping to rent my own place and would then claim housing benefit. I am 31 and in receipt of ESA income based (support group) and DLA (High rate mobility, Low rate care). I would like to know if its likely that i could claim a higher amount of HB than is typical of someone of my age as i was told that i would only be able to get enought HB for a room in a shared house. I dont know if i get a severe disability premium but i receive just under £240p2w. If anyone could help i would really appreciate it.
