Tips for Tenants


When you move into your new rented home you’ll want the experience to be as straightforward and stress-free as possible, so we’ve put together a guide full of advice about looking for a house to rent, rental costs, and tenancy agreements.

Most tenants will have an assured shorthold tenancy, and this gives them a number of basic rights, including the right to live in the accommodation and stop other people entering without permission, the right to have their property free from disrepair, the right to safety, such as fire resistant furniture and professionally checked gas and electrical appliances, and the right to end their tenancy agreement.

Tenants often agree extra rights with their landlord in the form of a written or verbal tenancy, but regardless of these extras a landlord cannot take away the basic legal rights of a tenant.

The following links offer more detailed information for tenants on what to consider before beginning your search for a home, what to look out for while you’re house hunting, the real cost of renting, the importance of a tenancy agreement, and what to do when you’re ready to move on.
