Landlords accepting one gets lifts (6)


I believe the answer is:

'lifts' is the definition.
('hoist' can be a synonym of 'lift')

'landlords accepting one' is the wordplay.
'landlords' becomes 'hosts' (I've seen this before).
'accepting' is an insertion indicator.
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral**).
'hosts' enclosing 'i' is 'HOISTS'.

'gets' is the link.

(Other definitions for hoists that I've seen before include "Raises or hauls up", "Lifts with ropes and pulley", "Lifting devices", "Lifts with a crane".)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
