I am in receipt of benefits because I have illnesses that affect my ability to work. I have in the past needed to look for a house to rent and I have been turned down by private landlords and housing estate agents as soon as they have found that I am in receipt of benefits. I know that I am not the only person in receipt of benefits that this happens to. I feel as if people on benefits get judged when trying to find a home to live in. I am creating this petition because I would like to make a change so that landlords and housing agencies​ can't refuse someone to rent their property just because they are on benefits.
