Advice and support for private tenants

If you are thinking of renting out a property or renting from a private landlord we can help. We have a dedicated Private Sector Housing Unit (PSHU) which can provide advice and assistance to both private sector tenants and landlords.

We can help you with the following:

  • landlord registration
  • finding accommodation
  • understanding your tenancy agreement
  • securing a deposit
  • safety, repairs and energy efficiency
  • new private residential tenancy
  • empty homes and bringing them back into use

Please contact our PSHU if you require further advice or assistance on any of the above.
