    Why don't landlords like DSS? 6th Oct 17 at 7:16 PM
    I do not use housing benefits and just ask this question out of curiosity.

    When I look for a place to rent, I see in most ads "NO DSS". I wonder why are landlords reluctant? Isn't the rent guaranteed by the governmental scheme?

    I understand that it is better to have a professional tenant rather than an unemployed one, but it should be better in terms of a guaranteed rent, as the government pays it. Or I have misunderstood the whole concept.
