Help and advice in finding privately rented accommodation
If you're looking for a home, private renting is often the quickest way to find housing, and offers a great deal of choice.
You might need to:
- pay a deposit
- pass a tenancy reference
- pay rent in advance
Properties come as either unfurnished, or furnished, and may or may not have white goods (for example, a washing machine). You'll need to check these details when considering a property.
