Equality laws could affect "no benefit tenants" policies

I have replied to that BBC article (on a form below it) along these lines:
"Maybe it is worth asking why Landlords do not want benefit tenants? From statistical point of view benefit tenants are more likely to run into arrears, damage the property (repairs sometimes worth thousands of pounds), not move out when served eviction (most of them will follow Shelter advice and live rent free to up to 40 weeks), effectively stealing from landlord.
Perhaps biased BBC should also consider the recent war on landlords leading to eviction due to selling or to substantial rent increase, caused by idiocy of Section 24 (tax on fictitious profit). Would HB tenant be able to afford such increase? This is forward thinking on the home provider's side.
BBC seems to forget that majority of lenders prohibit benefit tenants. Maybe Government should address that issue first? The government who would work with LLs and banks to provide an inexpensive mortgage on condition that the property will be rented to benefit tenants and rent will be paid directly to landlord will have a big win in election. But of course the need of rich cronies have to be addressed first. Tenants in a grand scheme of things do not really matter much to the Government"... Read More
