I'm having real problems finding an estate agent that has landlords who will accept housing benefit. Is there a list of agents I can call?

The easiest way to find landlords or agents that take dss are to ask your local authority. They will have a list of private landlords and agents that will accept you and this may even be on their website. Alternatively, you can look on Gumtree as they have a search engine that allows you to pick private landlords. Good Luck Harringtons Lettings

The best thing you can do is talk to your local council and they will have a list of all agents in the area that accept housing benefit.

You WOULD think the local council would have a list of landlords or agents who accept housing benefit, but no, at least not Richmond Council. I went in to ask and they don't have a list and can't help at all. They did suggest Gumtree, which I have checked, but this is equally useless. Most of the properties on Gumtree are through agencies and the private ones seem to ask well above the normal rental price asked by agencies.
