I have a HB tenant who signed a 6-month AST on 10th October 2008. The HB department made a mess of her HB application. She owes five hundred pounds rent. Rent is £675 pcm. Even though the property is a 1-bed she is now entitled to a 2-bed LHA allowance because she had a baby a few weeks ago. How does she apply for the 2-bed LHA? She has spoken to the HB people and expects the increased LHA to be paid automatically. Is that right?
