Rick - what you were just saying I will comment on:
You said above "
A three bed PRP house is currently around £93 a week (48 week year, semi-detached, small garden at front and darned big one at back). Terraced P[RP house round the corner, small garden at front and back -- AR at £125 (48 weeks), Private rent close to the first property, terraced, no gardens -- £650 every 4 weeks.
£93pw on a 48 week cycle is £85.85 on a 52 week cycle and this is needed for comparison.
The £650 every 4 weeks for the smaller private property is £162.50pw or if its a monthly figure £150.01pw.
So if the private rent is £150.01 pw its 74% more than the social home and all will be paid by LHA which is currently £160.38 in CE (Macc) for a 3 bed property.
If its £162.50pw then its an 87% increase of which nearly all (98.7%) will be covered by LHA
