    Operating across seven London boroughs, Investing Solutions is one of the largest recipients of housing benefit in the UK, making the venture hugely profitable.

    In one property we visited, Investing Solutions was claiming £2,114 per month in housing benefit for two tenants.

    The owner of the house was getting £1,150 per month, giving the agency an annual gross profit of £11,568 on the one property.
    The charity and the agency are coincidentally run by the same chap out of a storage unit :top:
