Local housing allowance - broad rental market

Local Housing Allowance (LHA) rates are used to calculate housing benefit for tenants renting from private landlords. LHA rates relate to the area in which you make your claim. These areas are called broad rental market areas (BRMA).

A BRMA is where a person could reasonably be expected to live taking into account access to facilities and services.

To find out about BRMAs see Understanding Local Housing Allowances rates - GOV.UK.
