My existing tenants one year into the contract asked me if they can go onto the HAP (housing assistant payments). I briefly read the leaflet for landlords on this earlier and am reluctant to accept it. I know there are benefits for example regular rent payments coming from the council and being able to claim 100% of mortgage interest. However there seems a lot of red tape, property inspections and form filling. Any landlords out there been in this situation ? For a landlord what are the pros and cons ? As a landlord do I have a right right to refuse the tenant?
