Managing your rented property

Private rented housing

Renting your property can be a complex legal area. There is no single piece of law that covers private rented housing.

In addition to the advice provided on these pages you are encouraged to become a member of a professional landlord body, you can find more information and advice on the National Residential Landlords Association website.

We don’t endorse membership of any landlord group over another. Being a member of such an organisation gives you access to professional advice and guidance that you may find invaluable.

Renting your property has three major aspects to it:

  • Starting a tenancy - pre tenancy checks.
  • Tenancy management (including property maintenance).
  • Ending a tenancy.

Covid-19 Housing Checklist

Covid-19 cases are high nationally and in Newham. Therefore, we have developed a checklist for multiple accommodation buildings to help support management and residents reduce the spread of transmission.
