We do accept tenants on housing benefit but I can see that this will just cause tenants more hassle and waste their time. Agents and landlords will have to advertise that they accept DSS, show tenants round and then they apply come up with an excuse why they weren't suitable.

I'd need to cheek,but I'm fairly sure my BTL mortgage conditions state no DSS tenants ...

My agent made a very good point once. He said we don't discriminate, however since its 6 weeks until claims are often settled then they ask benefit tenants for 6 weeks rent so the landlord is not out of pocket or inconvenienced. Add the months bond to this and most don't have the cash. He was a former lawyer :)

I do allow claimants. However it is my property and if I only wish to let it to Eskimo's, that's what ill do.

Insurance companies discriminal by charging landlords more for DSS tenants.

How about the Government stop trying to shaft the landlords and put back in place the tenants DSS rent money goes direct to the landlord. Landlords take enough risk why make us take another one.
