Evicting vulnerable tenant in hospital – Landlord Action response9:55 AM, 3rd July 2019
About 2 weeks ago 69
I have a disabled lady who wants to rent a property of mine. She says it is suitable for her and that the benefit office will cover the rent. They are doing so now in her existing rental property.
As she has an incurable illness, I assume the housing benefit will be long term.
Her son is her carer at the moment and has just got a job and will start next month. This will not affect her benefit entitlement she says.
I have not had a tenant in these circumstances before and was wondering how to verify such circumstances and whether it would be worth credit referencing for someone on benefits and just starting in a new job.
