Most tenants renting from private landlords have their housing benefit assessed under Local Housing Allowance (LHA) rules.
Housing Benefit and Council Tax Reduction can help pay your rent and/or Council Tax. Since 11 October 2017 Universal Credit has been rolled out across Doncaster and you may have to claim Universal Credit instead of Housing Benefit for help with your rent. You will still need to make a claim Council Tax Reduction if you receive, or are making a claim for, Universal Credit.
You need to let us know if you plan to move into, around or out of the Doncaster area as this may affect your Council Tax.
