Hi

If LL applies to receive LHA direct as T is more than 8 weeks in arrears, will LL recieve the fixed single room rate or the actual rent, which is cheaper than the room rate?

Thanks

What does the tenant receive? Is part of the money she receives the £15 excess?

I assume they get the single room rate which is slightly less than £15 more than the rent

If arrears exist, the landlord will receive the whole of the tenant's Housing Benefit entitlement (including any top-up).

If there are no arrears (or arrears are cleared) the landlord will only receive the actual rent. Any top-up will be awarded to the tenant.

I am now getting the full single room allowance as you said
