New scheme a benefit
2:30pm Wednesday 31st October 2012 in News
THE first dedicated property web portal that connects letting agents and landlords with people claiming housing benefit has been launched this week.
Dssmove is a free UK-wide 24 hour online service where DSS tenants can search, review and apply for a new home at the click of a mouse.
Every letting agent listed welcomes anyone claiming housing benefit and the application process is fast and convenient.
The portal is the first of its kind, with Dssmove bridging the gap between portals, such as Rightmove and Zoopla, and the niche tenant market.
“No other property site offers what we do,” says Dssmove founder Aki Ellahi. “We recognised the many difficulties faced by people on housing benefit when it came to finding a new home with many private landlords just saying no to DSS.
“But through Dssmove there is now an extensive network of landlords that are most certainly saying yes, and it’s an easy way for tenants to get in touch and find a suitable property.”
Dssmove offers detailed property listings across the country from onebed flats to four-bed family homes.
The new portal aids a smoothly run property rental process for tenants, landlords and letting agents alike.
“We can give tenants peace of mind and choice when it comes to searching for their new home. Our listed letting agents are checked by the Dssmove team and adhere strictly to our selection criteria. And that means peace of mind for landlords looking to rent out their properties.”
