Local Housing Allowance

We use Local Housing Allowance (LHA) to calculate your housing benefit. Find out more here.


The amount of LHA you can claim depends on factors like your household income, personal financial situation and the number of people who live with you.

To find out if you are eligible, complete an application.

The application is in two parts. The first is a calculator, which can give you an idea of what you may be entitled to, and the second part allows you to make a claim.

If you are elderly or have mobility problems, an officer can arrange to visit you at home. Please call 0151 443 4042 if you want to arrange this.

If you get Local Housing Allowance, it will be paid into your bank account. It is then your responsibility to pay the rent to your landlord.
