Focus on Housing Benefit tenants, with Aki Ellahi from DSS Move

We discuss the advantages of the DSS Move portal, what landlords should understand about the Housing Benefit system to avoid problems, and what the introduction of Universal Credit might mean for the sector.

Many landlords shy away from accepting tenants who receive Housing Benefit. This is partially due to a lack of understanding of the benefits system, but also because of perceived problems of antisocial behaviour and non-payment of rent.

Well, there's no one better placed to give us the truth about Housing Benefit tenants than Aki Ellahi, the founder of the portal DSS Move and the owner of a Wolverhampton lettings agency dealing with over 500 tenants on benefits.
