The number of bedrooms you qualify for depends on the number of people in your household.

One bedroom is allocated for each of the following:

* Each lone parent or couple                            * Each other person aged 16+

* Two children under 16 of the same sex           * Two children under 10 of the same or opposite sex 

* Any other child

A single person under 35 with no dependants only qualifies for the Shared Room Rate.

Anyone sharing facilities, regardless of age, will only be entitled to the Shared Room Rate, unless you have EXCLUSIVE use of more than one room.

All the Local Housing Allowance rates are generally fixed for one year (unless your household changes). A new rate will be applied on the yearly anniversary (this happens once a year on the day you first claimed LHA). Please be aware that the rates may go up or down dependant on what The Rent Service feels is a reasonable amount to pay.
