  • Looking for a good landlord.

    Hello,
    I have been looking to find a two bedroom property (flat/house) for the last couple of weeks that accepts DSS. The property will not be for me but for my folks (mum and dad).

    My parents are looking for a quiet area preferably north west London. They are well maintained very strict on hygiene and 100% when it comes to the rent, I can assure you that references provided will be excellent as they are very good tenants.

    My dad suffered an unfortunate illness which forced him to retire. The current property where they live is situated in a very busy high street where the noise is unbearable, hence the reason why they are looking to move.

    Please pm me if there is someone who is looking to help.

    Thank you

    I have other tenants in similar situations to your parents. Would they like to live in Norfolk or Suffolk - these are the only areas I invest in. There are some nice small country towns I'm familar with.

    I do not have any vacancies - my tenants have almost all been with me for years. But I may be willing to buy a house for them to move into. I'd like to invest some more now when its a buyer's market.

      You might sere if local CaB has a list of agents taking HB recipients - and also council housing dept.

      Given what you describe her as (poor lady...) she should get some priority for the housing register in most councils (but they have different rules..). Certainly worth applying, it's free....

      You ain't the first.

      Please confirm property is registered at some other address & you've got email also from land registry if anyone tries something?

      Par for the course I'm afraid. I hope you changed the council tax and utilities to tenant name when she moved in, or you have screwed yourself. You can get the council to pay you direct once two months rent is unpaid.

      My tenant was given a council house after 8 month continuing tenancy under a section 21 notice. Housing benefit was being paid directly to me.
      Housing benefit was paid up to 4th Jun, but my tenants did not return the keys until 6th July.
      Birmingham Council Houses are refurbished before...

      It is the tenant who has the liability for rent. Sue him.


      However there are sometimes circumstances when HB can be paid twice during change-over, but this one doesn;t sound promising & it requires the tenant to do stuff, fill in forms etc...

      Sue tenant: Then either...
