Bedroom Tax And Lha?

Recommended Posts

The LHA is the private sector version of bedroom tax. Has been in place longer. They calculate how many bedrooms you're entitled to and that's how much money you get to spend on your housing.

(Or was, I've no idea how UC actually affects this in reality)

Talk of dropping bedroom tax appears here and there with Corbyn

but will they repeal the LHA as a policy too?

and

Regulation of private rents should be linked to what determines whether something is
affordable. We should consider average earnings and in particular their rate of increase,
not the market rate for housing.

from his housing policy document

Does that mean he'd get rid of the LHA rent allowance cap and allow people on the social to have as big a house as they want in the private rented sector?
