Dss/housing benefit approved

When a property details state no dss does this mean that potential tenants being partially funded with housing benefit would be refused?

  • Hello Yvonne - it might be worth approaching the landlord and explaining the situation, as - if you are supplementing the rent with your own funds, there may be some leeway. If you have an employer and/or previous landlord that can give you a reference, that will also certainly help.

  • Generally means no DSS part or full will be considered. Some Landlords simply don't want the wait of delays in payment or the responsibility that if the claim was found to be wrong the Landlord will become liable to pay back the rent! Its worth a call to the agent to put your case, and have your figures to hand, as its part the LL may accept.
