Does anyone know if and where a HA/Charity take a cut from payments when it comes to providing emergency/temporary accommodation?
We have a 5-year deal with a HA & Charity for the whole house. Currently, it is split into 6 beds – all sharing bathroom and kitchen facilities. We get a set figure rent.
If each room is let to a single person, does that mean that they are getting the LHA shared room rate accordingly for each tenant, or do they get more than this for each person by definition as they have provided the Council with emergency accommodation so the rate is increased?
I am only asking as I have another building that is split into four separate units all with their own private facilities and kitchenettes. These are under the LHA classification as one-bed flats and so incur a higher LHA rate. Is it just a case of asking for a total rent of 4 x this category from the HA knowing they get paid more for each unit they supply to the Council?
We would be happy with this 4 x total, but at the same time just curious as to how the process with HA’s and Council’s work on this basis. Seems shrouded in mystery to me especially as you ring up the Council, and they say they don’t have a preferred HA supplier list, they seem to go with any HA that can provide accommodation….
Can anyone enlighten me please?
