just read this and im not rascist but i do agree with home owners being ablebto discriminate against people in their properties.
When i rented out our 2nd house i said no DSS which to me is the same as saying no blacks but it was my property so my choice.

If I rented a property I would only let it out to British professionals.

renting rooms to women only, no dss, etc is believed to be illegal. its believed because it is currently untested in the legal system and it is based mainly on case law.

My own personal view is that you are letting a room, flat, or another property, to make money.
You, as good business sense would dictate, want the best person to pay you rent. There are very easy ways to provide this with references from their work, credit references, prior landlords.
I don't see how their ethnicity is of any importance and should really be a consideration.
Like i say estate agents have been "getting away" with this for years as its a largely untested area.

If a runaway train was about to kill a white briton and the only thing you could do to save him/her was to divert the train onto another track that would kill a black person who is probably on dss, would you do it?

A reliable indication that a racist is about to say something racist. Discriminating against a group of people in this way on the grounds of their race is pretty much the definition of racism, whether it is legal or not, and if you don't see it as wrong then you are a racist.

I realise this may be a feeble joke, but it is the kind of ignorance on which racism thrives.


Racism is disgusting, but simply being a racist should not be illegal any more than any other opinion or creed. People should be free to think, and in virtually all circumstances to say what they wish. But this goes way beyond that. Landlords and Estate Agents are conspiring to deny a group of people the opportunity of a home on the grounds of their race. They are going about it in a cowardly and fraudulent way. Lying about availability and making them wait for a call that never comes.
This confirms the worst stereotypes of Estate Agents. If a landlord asks them to do their racist dirty-work they should tell him where to shove it.

My best tenants to date were a black male couple.

I've now got a female couple - I wonder if I'm cashing in as a liberal since some of the market is closed to these groups?

My head lease says no DSS, but I'd do that anyway.

I think your way off the mark Barney im NOT rascist and i agree rascism is disgusting.
My point on the whole article is that i believe that if a person says to their agent DO NOT rent my house to a black family then thats their right, i would also say if a person tells their agent DO NOT rent my house to a white family then thats their right as the owners.
I agree the estate agents are the ones in the wrong here but im sorry i cannot agree that the owners of the homes are wrong, wether they are rascist or not.

As for your point about the 'joke' that was NO JOKE i told the letting agent no DSS tennants and that was fine it was my choice as to the renters i did or did not want in MY house. If i had told them i didnt want any black people in then i would have expected my wishes to be stuck to. (i didnt and never would btw)

ok let me ask this question,

You own a mid terrace house and your White nextdoor neighbours (Bothsides) spend each and every weekend at BNP and National Front marches, you do not agree with their ideals but you know they are very very right wing fanatical, You decide to move but you dont want to sell your house you want to rent it out, would you not feel morally obliged to advise your letting agent to not put a black/chinese/asain family in the house for safety reasons and for the sake of probable damage to your property?

I dont believe i called the BNP or National Front rascist at any point i just said that the neighbours went to BNP/National Front meeting and that they (meaning the neighbours) were very very right wing fanatics.
