  • Hi Dallas31, There will be a few who accept those on housing benefit, although they can often be difficult to locate, but there are a couple of ways to do so and increase your chance of being able to find a rental home to move into even if your conditions are not ideal. One way you can seek out such a landlord or agent is to get in touch with the housing department at Worthing Borough Council, which will keep a list of landlords and lettings agents that accept people who are receiving housing benefits. This will be the easiest and quickest way to find what you are looking for. You might also like to turn towards private landlords, as these can often be more flexible than the hard and fast rules which some agents will work to, meaning you can talk to them about your personal situation. Finally, you might also use Zoopla's search, and in particular the advance option, where you can look for a keyword. Try searching the likes of "benefits" or "DSS" and see what landlords offer. Thanks, Scott

  • There is a new portal that is dedicated exclusively to people looking to rent on housing benefit. It is called DSS Move and all properties listed on their are open to housing benefit tenants. Good luck with your search. Worthing is a nice part of the world! :)
