Information for Private Renters
We provide easy to understand information for private renters, allowing you to make an informed decision as to when to seek further help. This information is about your rights if you have an Assured Shorthold Tenancy. This is often described as a Fixed Term Tenancy. Most people who rent their home privately have this type of tenancy.
This information is provided as guidance only and is not legal advice. Remember to act with caution. You have lots of rights in relation to your home but you do not have much security. We recommend getting help before you assert your tenancy rights.
