Private renting offers you greater freedom to find the type of accommodation you require in the area you wish to live.
Private landlords offer a wide range of accommodation, often in areas that councils and housing associations cannot. They tend to offer properties on six monthly tenancies, which can be renewed if they are happy with the way you have managed your tenancy. You don't have the same security of tenure, but the shorter tenancies and higher mobility works well for people who need to move frequently. Rents can be higher than in social housing so if you need help with your rent, check out the Local Housing Allowance before you commit to a tenancy.
You can look for private rental properties on websites such as Rightmove or by visiting local letting agents.
We work with private landlords that are committed to offering good quality accommodation and these properties will be advertised on our Home-Options website.
