Local Housing Allowance FAQ's
BRMAs are defined in law.
These factors must be considered by the rent officer:
- Have regard to access and standards of Health, Education, Recreation, Banking and Shopping
- Distance of travel by public and private transport
Residential premises of a variety of types and tenancies
- The aim of the BRMA determination is to identify a geographical area in which it would be objectively reasonable for a tenant of the dwelling in question to consider alternative places to live
The BRMAs will be mapped on a Geographic Information System and published and will be regularly reviewed.
