With so much debate and confusion centring on the Local Housing Allowance scheme in the last 12 months, private landlords may be able to find some clarity at the forthcoming National Landlords Association (NLA) National Conference.

Marion Money, a portfolio landlords and NLA trainer and regional representative, will be on hand to deliver a session for attendees dubbed Understanding LHA.

Some of the issues that will be discussed during the so-called breakout session include details on how LHA tenants can get help if they become unemployed and what do if the tenant stops paying a landlord rent.

A more general look at how private landlords can make the LHA scheme work for them will also take place.

The whole scheme has been somewhat controversial since it took over from the old housing benefit system 18 months ago.

Many landlords have found that they have lost money now that local authorities pay housing benefit to the tenant, rather than directly to the property owner.
