Britain's Benefit Tenants

Series 1 - Episode 2

Tuesday 1:10am - 2:05am 4seven


As austerity bites, many landlords are finding an increasing number of their tenants are falling into arrears, and need help to recoup their losses. In the north-east of England, former pub landlord Rob McKenzie spends his time tracking down people who disappear owing thousands. Corporate agent David Brown tackles problem portfolios, and after a year of warnings, he evicts two brothers from a Gateshead flat that has no heating and no flushing lavatory. He also tries to help a pregnant woman apply for the correct benefits after she has failed to pay her rent for five months as her landlord, London postman Sean, struggles to pay the mortgage on the Hartlepool house that she lives in.
