    Hi and welcome to the community 

    I'm sorry but we don't have that sort of info 

    Check out some letting agents or estate agents like right move or zoopla 

    Also gumtree often has adverts

    If your clients income is solely benefits he will struggle to find private rent however not impossible

    I agree with Janer that if the person claims for help with the rent then finding a landlord that will accept them may not be easy. A lot of landlords will ask for a guarantor and some will want home owner ones. 
    Has the person considered supported housing? This maybe something to look into.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
