Universal credit and housing benefit

dkuk2020 Member Posts: 5 Listener
I'm currently living at home but looking to move out soon. I'm also receiving ESA. I need to find out roughly how much housing support I can get. I know this can only be done properly when I have a specific flat in mind. When on check the LHA site based on a flatshare the rate is £150 per week but a 1 bedroom is £250 per week. I'm looking for either a studio or a flatshare - a flatshare being more likely with 1-3 others. I know there are online forms to help with this on the gov.uk site i.e turn to us and entitled to but I find the forms to complicated to do on my own. Can anyone help with this?
