Landlords accepting one gets lifts (6)
'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".)
