Special Rules for Under 25s
If you are single, under 25 and eligible for Housing Benefit, the Housing Benefit Regulations restrict the amount of benefit you can receive to the equivalent of the cost of renting a room in a shared house. In Aylesbury Vale this figure varies depending on the size and quality of the accommodation.
Consider using a pre-tenancy determination to try to establish whether a place is likely to be affordable for you. See Help with paying your rent.
