I'm from Yorkshire. I guess my flat cap, hob nail boots and whippet would not be welcome?

Move along, nothing to see, its part of the "mental illness" called "being a landlord."

They forgot Blacks and Irish.

BTW I dont think the DSS has existed for years

One point I saw on this topic on another board was that many landlords who exclude tenants in receipt of benefits are actually scamming the social themselves and do not want the authorities to know about their rental income.

How refreshing.
Bankers may well have acted as if they’ve been sitting in the casino during the boom years. But it was a state-owned casino, with governments as the croupiers, and central bankers behind the bar giving out free booze.

Given the dot on the i in the shape of a circumflex accent and the lines through the middle of the 7s, I wonder if the author of the ad is French and thus doesn't quite understand the connotations of the phrase "working class" in the UK?

Still, all kudos to her (it looks like a woman's handwriting to me) - if it had been a case of no wogs or poofters she'd be in trouble, but I can't think of any anti-discrimination legislation that makes it an offence to discriminate on the grounds of social class specifically. If it did come to court, it would be interesting to say the least to hear the lawyers argue over the qualifying definition of working class!

Steed, hailing fron Udder's, son of a LL, having witnessed the unsavory world of DSS/DHSS/Social/LHA/Karncil for 20+ years I can tell you it always ends badly for the LL.

They start off good, working, partner moves in/out, they move out 9/10 owing money, leaving the place in a poor state.

Life is hard, circumstances drive people to drink/drugs/illegal work/playing the system to survive, people get bitter, looking to blame someone. Invariably the LL takes the brunt, he is the 'visible one', the soft target, "the one with money".

Play with fire often enough, get burnt enough everyone wants out, dealing with 'difficult people' is difficult.

LL's in Udder's are basically social workers on Kirklees payroll.

Easier ways to make money IMHO

Is this cheap for the area?

I saw one locally that said "strictly no HB" and was about 50% cheaper than you would expect for similar properties.

Which I thought is a pretty good indicator of how housing benefit makes rents unaffordable for everyone.

Often these room lets are claiming housing benefit themselves therefore do not want housing benefit claimants themselves.

The cheapest room let I have ever scene was £40 a week all bills inclusive for a single room, the owner was a naturist. I never did enquire.

Can't have the lumpen proletariat living close to any of the 'amendities' can we?
That's it, I'm getting a wall-safe.

I'd be happy if I were right but I'll settle for being Less Wrong
