Appreciate you responding Matthew. Two degrees in Politics eh Im not surprised. LL's (like me) after a while are just blunt straight to the point & as my wife says (become more miserable over the years) The discussion points you bring up are really the benefit system, getting paid, clawback etc that you are referring to. The other is does a DSS applicant in general make a good tenant. Of course they can I have three tenants now that I know to receive LHA. 14, 10 & 9 years respectively. They are to all . A couple that have Downs syndrome, An Eastern European & a woman of near 80 Yrs of age. All look after their properties, all polite and easy to communicate with. So your point stands really. The WHY they are on benefits. However there is a large amount of tenants that can only rent via HB/UC that have never worked, have multiple issues quoting depression being a popular one & yes I'm saying it: Single Mothers the most expensive tenant in anyone's portfolio. I know its generalising but its true I have the bills to prove it. Ex boyfriends kicking UPVC doors cos the baby father is back on the scene. Tenant then claims that the door doesn't close & when am I sending someone round to fix it. Boiler not working & they scream Human Rights abuses & all because the pressures dropped. Vandalism or their version of decorating without permission skills on show. High wear & tear of the carpets and walls then to top it off their mental health worker calling you up threatening & demonstrating complete misunderstanding of a law. We are automatically regarded as scum landlords when they call. Claim suspended because of 'change of circumstances' is a good one. You will say the system is to blame but then you have two weeks of pleading for them to sort the claim out to get it reinstated. Now this is a mere snapshot of managing a DSS/Single Mother tenant. Compare this to a working tenant and honestly none of these issues seems to occur as much. The costs of taking these tenants on are eye watering. From your remarks I don't think you've enjoyed this experience.As for Shelter. This is a business to them Polly Neate makes six figures & will go onto another six figure job like her predecessor. All by slating the private LL. They are not really bothered by homelessness. If homelessness went overnight they would have to find another job. They need it to exist. The obscene Government handout to this organisation along with subsidised charity shops, Blatant lies pushed during the pandemic by media ads. Special place in hell for them!!  This Matthew is why we run when we get these applicants. Do you blame us?

Hi Beth You’ve posted on here looking for support. As fellow landlords especially in this time we should be doing that. This is our plan parts of which has been advised to me by other experienced landlords/agents. If a tenant calls to notify or doesn't make payment we go through this procedure. First thing we do is ask them to fill out an the expenditure form & return the SAME DAY After receiving we then make another call & ask for 3 months bank statements & 3 months wage slips. If they are claiming self isolation or sickness then a medical cert is needed. We then call them and say first thing that will be accepted is a reasonable food bill then its the rent. If they are getting furlough money then they can easily afford and the expenditure form demonstrates this. Everything else can be part payed, stopped, deferred etc. They can apply for payment holidays for loans. Credit cards. Catalogue debt. They can also defer their Council tax This saves them an easy £100 per month & I've been advised could be written off in the future. If a tenant refuses to fill out a form or give the bank/wage details then this is considered unauthorised arrears. The landlord will serve a Section 21 & a Section 8 if arrears occur and go for CCJ. They will definitely be living elsewhere next year without doubt. All letting agents & landlords in the county will be notified by the landlord of this tenant!! When it comes to a reference in future we have to be honest and tick the box that says yes rent arrears. The computer generated reference will not recognise corona debt. Unauthorised arrears will attract interest at Bank Interest + 4%. We have found once we are in discussion with the tenant the rent is then paid as they are meant to be getting 80% furlough. A lot of them were trying it on either by thinking the gov has advised this or certain organisations have advocated this. If a tenant comes to us before we go to them and asks for help then we arrange something. We will work with them and look after them. They don't have to worry re their tenancy. To summarise food is first then its rent then its whatever tenant wants to pay. We are not messing around In your case Beth if there are joint tenants then they are severely liable. Same process to them. If they refuse to comply then quite simply they will learn the hard way
