Landlords warned not to discriminate against benefits tenants8:58 AM, 14th July 2020

We have a four bed student property, let individually. In our local authority an HMO is classified as five or more.
One student is holding over through the summer and into the next academic year. The others have left, but were planning to go at the end of term anyway.
The question now is, what do I need to do to enable new tenants to view and hopefully take up occupancy for the next academic year?
The existing tenant is well and not isolating. We are planning to deep clean and decorate as soon as the rest have moved on, but are we permitted to allow viewings in the same way as property sellers.
Also, are the prospective tenants allowed to move in together just on their own confirmation of ‘wellness’?
