Stamford and Grantham MP Nick Boles is one of more than 300 MPs claiming rent on expenses.
The planning minister rents a property in Stamford from Burghley House Preservation Trust.
New rules now ban MPs from claiming expenses for mortgages - but still allows them to claim for rent.
MPs claiming rent costs the taxpayer more than £1m a year.
Elected MP for Grantham and Stamford in 2010, Mr Boles has come under fire both nationally and locally in recent months.
First he called for pensioners to be means-tested for benefits such as winter fuel allowances and free bus passes and then it was revealed he claimed £678.80 expenses for Hewbrew language lessons - after entering into a civil partnership with Israeli Shay Meshulam last year.
Mr Boles was unavailable for comment.
