Re:Chasing DSS payments
It is standard for local councils to pay tenants directly nowadays since they introduced LHA (formerly housing benefit).
There are certain criteria whereby payments can be made directly to a landlord but to be honest (unless faked!) if your tenant can meet them, they are not the sort of tenant you want!
It is the most ridiculous scheme the government have ever introduced tbh and has cost my agency a lot of money due to tenants spending their rent and the total losses across the country since its inception is millions!
Dont even get me started on the caps they are putting on LHA rates in April! Thank christ my business isnt in London or it would be costing me a fortune!
Grrrrrrr...rant over !
