Real rents v LHA rents - info request

Reply to the comment left by David Lovegrove at 18/07/2019 - 13:41Yes . I dont know how many areas have been given this lifeline. I did see some stats once but cant remember where now . My council kept it very quiet of course hoping LL`s wouldnt find out. It would have been nice if they sent me an e mail. I discovered it by accident over a year into the freeze . I bet dozens of tenants have been evicted up and down the country because of being kept in the dark by lack of transparency . The 3% lift pa could have made the difference between keeping someone on or letting them go . The Gov pretend they want to reduce homelessness but dont do anything to keep us informed of a pay rise
Imagine an employer who was really short staffed and was keen to keep his workers . They have a 3% rise pa in their budget all costed but dont even tell you let alone automatically pay you. So when a worker puts in his notice as he hasn't had a wage rise for 3 years they just let him go rather than tell him and pay him a 9% rise . Its unthinkable they would do that as its so counter productive.
It just shows the double standards of the government... Read More

Probably not as personally I`m tired and I think its just a paper exercise . For the last 3 years the LHA rents have risen 3% pa so to the wider public they say its frozen but in reality they are not . So they continue to speak falsehoods. I think they just look at the breakdown of the sec 21`s on their desk as an indicator to how big the DHP fund should be the following year . The actual LHA rate has become largely irrelevant. Bit like the council tax bands when they were introduced

2020 will be interesting year......will there be a massive leap of say 15% to catch up with market rates or/and will they come up with a much more focused and relevant LHA policy . With UC still filtering through as well I have moved slowly and surely away from the HB market for the past 4 years . I may also take my money and run if they continue to put the boot into me...

That`s interesting . Can i ask - do they ask for documentary evidence to validate your figures or just take your word for it over the phone ?... Read More
