It is important that you are entitled to the full LHA (local housing allowance) for the property you wish to apply for. Please state the LHA rate you expect to get and list the reasons you will qualify
e.g. I qualify for a category C two bed property at £450 per month for myself and my two daughters aged 10 & 12. I do not have any income apart from child allowance.
For more information go to: http://www.dudley.gov.uk/advice-benefits/benefits/local-housing-allowance/
If the LHA is less than the rental amount of the property you are applying for, please state clearly how the shortfall will be made up
e.g. My father, who will also be guarantor, will make up the difference
Last but not least, all benefit applicants must have a guarantor who:
1) Is prepared to stay as guarantor for the full time that you are at the property and not just the initial 6 month term 2) Is in receipt of an income which is 3 times the annual rent of the property you are interested in (eg, if the rent is £450pcm, the guarantor will need to earn at least £16,200pa) 3) Has a clean credit history. You do not need to supply your guarantor details at this stage but please do not submit this form and ask to see a property with us unless you do have a guarantor who meets the above criteria.
Yes, I have someone who will be my guarantor *
