Why won't anyone rent to our daughter?

iPM

Two listeners on how landlords turned them away

"In the same way that they were saying 'no pets, no smokers', they were saying 'no LHA'."

Listeners Graham and Sara tell how difficult it was to find their daughter - who has cerebral palsy and learning difficulties - a flat because landlords wouldn't accept tenants who received housing benefits.

We find out why landlords are saying no to tenants who get Local Housing Allowance (LHA), the impact this has on vulnerable people like our listeners' daughter and how they found her a home in the end.
