Comment on: Private landlords snubbing tenants on benefits
I am a social housing manager at work and I would not take a benefit claiming tenant in my own property. I once did this and had my fingers burned very badly when £5k damage was caused to my property and items stolen. Even when concrete evidence of the theft were found the police did nothing. I know not all are bad tenants, but private landlords are right in assuming hassle and grief from public sector/benefit claiming tenants. It would improve things to some extent if rent was paid direct landlords only, but benefit tenants cause more of the other problems like damage than private tenants in my personal experience (as housing manager and private landlord)

Rioters/ASB thugs will think twice about their actions if their family loses their home! So I like this and hope Wandsworth is successful
