We have a dedicated Private Sector Housing Unit (PSHU) to deal with issues surrounding the private sector and provide housing advice and assistance to all private sector residents, tenants and landlords in East Ayrshire.
If you would like further information on either you rights and/or responsibilities as a private sector landlord or a private sector tenant then please contact the PSHU.
As a private sector tenant you can also find further information on the Shelter website.
