    People lazily refer to tenants 'on benefits' when what most really mean is people who do not work. As artful says many people have some sort of top up by the Govt - tax credits, child benefit, LHA - because their incomes are below the threshold set. If you remove all these people from your pool of tenants...

    Hello all, I am a prospective landlord. I will be arranging my first mortgage in principle today as a start to my evil buy-to-let empire. As a total newb, what would be the one piece of advice you would give after your years of experience as a landlord?

    " Is it wise to do restrict your market?" in my opinion yes - what is your experience and would you recommend to the OP that s/he accepts tenants on benefits?

    Perhaps I should hare been clearer and said none working tenants on benefits, I do not have a problem with people working...

    Almost one in ten private landlords with Universal Credit claimants have experienced at least one tenant running into difficulties paying their rent.

    That's not good odds....

    Being as I am in receipt of 6 benefits (old) I do wonder why some landlords indulge in such discrimination.

    More than half UK adults are in receipt of some benefit (CB, wtc, CTC, etc etc ). Is it wise to do restrict your market?

    How would you know a prospective tenant is...

    "I see a theme here :-) What is your experience with people on benefits?"

    I have been renting properties for over 20 years initially to mixture of working and benefit tenants. I have had to evict 3 tenants - all of them on benefits. This has cost me about £12,000 in lost rent...

    It would be different now, your sister owns half the house, and if you're living in all of it, she can claim rent for the half she owns.
    She wouldn't be making money from your mother's estate, which has now been divided up.

    She won't succeed unless there's some other circumstance...

    In a large nutshell and apologies for going off thread topic. Rental yields in my area (and many areas) have risen, particularly in the last year or 2. Even though house prices have gone up, rental prices have increased at a faster rate, so a better return on investment is being achieved lately....

    Thanks for your reply's and time , it's a difficult situation especially when it's a sibling trying to get more money out of me.
    She wants 50% of the current rental value from me for herself which is clearly making a profit from my mother's estate which there was never any agreement made between...
