Zoopla promises to end housing benefit discrimination

People receiving housing benefit can no longer be barred from renting properties advertised on one of the UK's largest listing sites.

Zoopla says it will prohibit landlords posting "No DSS" ads, a commonly-used acronym of the now defunct Department of Social Security.

The National Housing Federation and Shelter found that one in 10 agents in England refused to let to DSS tenants.

I thought I'd create another post about this as people were confusing it with the group Momentum.

Regards the topic in hand, frankly I find the activities of landlords, landlord groups and estate agents quite cynical, they're doing it for their own self-interest and trying to paint it as looking after vulnerable tenants. 

This makes it easier for them to borrow and keep tenants on without being penalised, yet we're led to believe they're doing a good deed.

They get to make out they're doing a charitable thing helping vulnerable tenants, without anyone spelling out the nefarious stuff they've happily been up to these past 20 years or so.

Moreover, someone needs to do a survey of landlords, because I get the feeling many haven't got a clue what their legal obligations are.

So it would be better that this change does not happen then - ok cool
