Housing benefit information - What's the next step?

Once the number of bedrooms you need is worked out, the next step is to look up the Local Housing Allowance rate for the area that you live. The Valuation Office Agency has reviewed all areas of the UK, containing privately rented accommodation and has set these areas depending on their access to services, transport, schools etc. These will be known as Broad Rental Market Areas (BRMA).

Bassetlaw will fall into three Broad market Rental Areas, they are:

  • Mansfield, Worksop and Retford (North Notts)
  • Doncaster
  • Newark & Grantham

Each area will have a weekly LHA rate set by the Valuation Office Agency and these will be published these pages so that you can check how much your Benefit will be based on.
