Private rented housing

The private rented sector has grown within East Ayrshire and now accounts for almost 7% of the local housing market.

We have a dedicated Private Sector Housing Unit 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.

Download our guidance for private landlords and guidance for private tenants.

These guides provide all the information tenants and landlords need to know in relation to tenancy agreements, their rights and responsibilities, safety, antisocial behaviour, landlord registration and lots of other useful information.
