Local Housing Allowance Acocks Green

Local Housing Allowance is a new method that the local councils have introduced to help DSS tenants to find their next property.  The method is used to help maintain a fair way for everyone to calculate what they are entitled to when they look to claim benefit.  This part of the Benefithousing website will help give you information and advice on how to use the LHA (Local Housing Allowance) method to calculate the probable payments you are entitled to.
