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 Landlords Association website or on the Residetial 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.
