Private Tenant Support

If you are a private tenant or are considering renting from a private landlord the government's booklet 'How to Rent: the checklist for renting in England' has further information about your rights and responsibilities.

The guide covers each stage of the rental process, including:

  • what to look out for before renting
  • living in a rented home
  • if you are asked to leave
  • what happens at the end of a tenancy
  • what to do if things go wrong

For more information about:

  • Legal requirements
  • Reporting concerns

Landlords must also have registered every deposit with a tenancy deposit protection scheme - more information is available on the GOV.UK website.
