Your housing costs will be calculated using the Local Housing Allowance (LHA) for your area.
There will be a LHA rate set based on rental prices in your area and the number of rooms you need based on the size of your benefit household (ie you, your partner if you have one and your children who live with you).
I’m entitled to a 2 bed property but have a 3 bed, so I get LHA for a 2 bed and have to pay the rest of the rent myself.
