  • Hi Tessa1975, It's often difficult because letting agents deal with properties rather than landlords themselves, so it can be like having to go through a middle man to find out if someone does or does not accept someone on housing benefits. Your best option, however, is simply to make yourself seem as appealing as you possibly can to the landlord - you do this by making sure you have references from previous landlords or agents, ensuring you have a guarantor, which can be the major deciding factor, and also trying to build up a deposit. Your other options are to look towards the likes of the local council. They often have a list of letting agents that accept people on housing benefits, and they might be able to pass that on to you. Many thanks, Scott
