Need help finding housing benefit friendly landlords

I am struggling to find a private landlord in Exeter that will accept housing benefits. I am currently homeless and sofa surfing so desperate for a bedsit / studio flat. I would be very grateful for some advice as the local council have not helped at all. They have no list of landlords who accept any form of benefits.

  • Its not the easiest task especially when agents tend to treat you like a piece of rubbish when you even mention HB. The only option is to try gumtree/vivastreet and see if there are private landlords who will consider you. Good luck.

  • The evening post have a few properties try twitter or facebook also post your ad in shop windows. You could also try ringing round some agencies see if they would accept a guarantor or 6 months rent upfront.
