What is a pre-tenancy determination?

After 7 April 2008 new claimants in privately rented accommodation will have their housing benefit assessment based on local housing allowance.

If you have a prospective tenant who is considering taking up the offer of a tenancy that does not fall into the categories for LHA and is unsure about whether they will be able to afford the rent, they can ask for the council to obtain a pre-tenancy determination (PTD).

The PTD is available from the rent officer and will enable the maximum level of rent to be used in the housing benefit assessment to be known before a formal claim is actually made.
