Broad Rental Market Area
Your Local Housing Allowance rate depends on where you live, this means which 'Broad Rental Market Area' (BRMA) you live in. BRMAs are not the same as local authority areas - normally one BRMA covers a number of councils. In some cases a local authority contains two or more BRMAs, as the boundaries are not the same. Each BRMA has its own fixed rates of Local Housing Allowance.
The entitledto calculator will work out which BRMA you live in and the appropriate Local Housing Allowance rate for you.
Local Housing Allowance rates are updated annually in April.
