Client’s partner has nil recourse and client is under 35. I’ve researched and it says you can’t get a bedroom for someone in the household when you are a couple and need to claim as a single person. Just want to double check that’s right in terms of the 1 bed LHA rate?

Thank you

For UC yes that is correct.  See the preamble in para 28(2) of Schedule 4 to the UC Regs.
