How will LHA be paid?

LHA will usually be paid directly to you.

It will be up to you to pay your rent to your landlord. If you do not pay your rent you may be evicted from the property.

You may want to open a bank account if you do not already have one. That way you will be able to pay your rent to your landlord by direct debit or standing order. You can get advice about opening a bank account from any bank or building society of your choice. We also have a list of local banks and building societies to help you - see our leaflet below for further details.
