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

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