Councils stuck with B&B

Do Landlords want DSS tenants?

Reports that councils housing homeless in B&Bs have increased by 800%.

Notwithstanding that it is illegal to house people in a B&B for more than 6 weeks the number of people so housed has increased by 800%.

There are several possible reasons: the Council may be unwilling to pay the rents demanded from landlords, landlords may be asking too much or are happy with the tenant that they have in, or, more significantly, their landlords insurance may not cover 'DSS tenants'.

With B Portwood & Co Ltd the price for landlord insurance for DSS tenants is incredibly low. A quote for 300,000 building sum insured in London and 15,000 contents sum insured is available from as little as 438.29 - which could be half the cost elsewhere.
