How to rent

Renting information

The government have produced a guide for tenants and landlords in the private rented sector called how to rent (GOV.UK). If you are a tenant or a landlord, this guide will help you understand your rights and responsibilities. It provides a checklist and more detailed information on each stage of the process, including:

  • What to look out for before renting
  • Living in a rented home
  • What happens at the end of a tenancy
  • What to do if things go wrong

It’s now a legal requirement for landlords to give their tenants the latest version of the 'how to rent' guide at the start of their tenancy.
