    That said, I wouldn't rent to anyone on benefits, mainly because they don't care about their credit rating, whereas private tenants do care, very much, so they'll be less inclined to sit tight and wait for the courts to do their thing.
    I'm glad some people have reading comprehension skills above those of an 11 year old.

    Most people's reading comprehension skills in the UK are around 9.

    Yet you are still happy to state:

    "go ahead and do it if you wish, but at your own risk and don't say I didn't warn you, of accepting tenants on universal credit"

    and fail to comprehend that the end result of your statement will be more people being homeless which clearly you object to

    My point was that you are

    1) telling people that its a risk to accept tenants on housing benefit

    2) but yet dislike the fact that be wary may result in people said people on universal credit end up being homeless as everyone is too wary to accept them...

    In small words as clearly your comprehension skills are better than your logical thought ones...

    That's because everything in your world view is black and white.

    There are good reasons why landlords who won't take on tenants on benefits will rent a property to one particular person on benefits but you clearly haven't met anyone like that.

    You also don't seem to notice that PurpleGorilla has a history of slamming landlords regardless of what the actual topic is about even though he lives in a house with a mortgage.

    Actually my dislike is woolly thinking and an inability to reach the logical end consequence of a suggestion. Everything you've posted is trying to circumnavigate yourself away from the logical end point of your initial statement...
