What's best way to find a flat to rent on universal credit


#1

What’s best way to find a flat to rent on universal credit? Ive tried googling and lots of sites seem to offer DSS or Universal credit possiblities in the result of the initial search, but it turns out to be a mirage. Adzuna, in particular, I find to be absolute rubbish. Is there any hope ?Im desperate.

Hi,

Around 1/3rd of our properties accept DSS; the exact terms and application process are up to the individual landlord in question.

In the event that you find any properties that are mistakenly advertised by landlords as accepting DSS, you can report this on the website and we’ll always follow up.

All our available properties are visible by searching on www.openrent.co.uk, where you can contact landlords directly on each listing page using the “Message Landlord” / “Book Viewing” buttons.

You can choose to view only DSS properties by ticking the “Accept DSS” box on the search results page. If we don’t have anything suitable for you right now you can also set up an email alert by clicking the green “Create Email Alert” button. We’ll then email you (up to once a day) when new properties become available in your area.

Kind Regards,
George
