Do they use LHA? Hard to find information around this.

Do you mean site rent for a mobile home?

HB recognises that unconventional accommodation isn’t comparable with the LHA market and instead there is an individual Rent Officer’s valuation (Claim Related Rent).  This applies to caravan site rent, mooring fees for boats and also accommodation with substantial meal charges.

UC however applies LHA across the board.
