Does anywhere accept DSS

I am just wondering if you would possibly be able to advise of any agents who accept people that are claiming DSS in the Sutton, Surrey area. Willing to move as far as Wallington, Carshalton, Morden and Cheam.

  • Hi, It is up to the Landlord of the property (rather than the agent) if they will accept tenants on DSS. Our office in Sutton will be able to advise if they currently have any properties available that meet your requirements. Hope this helps!

  • Hi Dweston, The best people to get in touch with over issues like this is often the local council. They will sometimes hold a list of landlords in the private sector who will deal with people who are receiving benefits that they can pass onto you. Apart from this, the best thing to do is to get in touch with the lettings agents themselves. While some will not want to deal with a DSS client, there are others who will show a degree of leeway, or have landlords on their books who are happy to do so. The most effective thing you can do though is simply to get in touch with a lettings agent if you see a property you like. Perhaps go in and see them face to face. That way you can explain your situation to them. Be prepared, if you can, to offer a larger deposit, various references from your previous landlords and even a few months rent in advance to give the landlord and agent peace of mind. Many thanks, Scott
