 Currently your Housing Benefit is set for 12 months unless there is a change of circumstances.
 A change in the amount of rent charged is not considered a change in circumstances.

 The government have now changed the law and if the rent increases [or decreases] during the year it will be treated like any other change of circumstances and they will make a new calculation, which means that they will be entitles upto the maximum current LHA rate.

I have not found this change within the government website, however I would note that I have found this stated clearly on various council websites and presume that this is correct.

Good Luck All
