  1. There is another side to this story. Is it discrimination if you are considering the tenants ability to pay? I was considering letting because unable to find a buyer for my house at this time. The Letting agency advised against DSS tenants because if they lose their benefits as are many people are they can’t pay and the council helps them to stay in the property and it is not easy to get them out. As a landlord you would lose rental income. I would also look at working peoples ability to pay, past history and if I felt comfortable letting them rent my home.
