Would you consider letting your property to tenants receiving benefits?

We posted this video around tenants receiving benefits on Facebook a while back, and it got garnered quite a bit of attention, so we thought we’d also share it on the blog! It’s a contentious topic to say the least, and of course everyone’s experience as a landlord is unique. Sometimes one experience can tarnish your future choices, and who you may accept as a tenant. On the other hand, some of the best tenants can very well be those who are receiving some kind of benefits. Ultimately it comes down to the history of a tenant, not whether they are being supported by benefits, and simple reference checking can help you determine the reliability of a future tenant more accurately. Let us know in the comments what your experiences have been and whether you believe it’s right for some landlords to reject tenants based on their benefits circumstances…
