New guidance to help tenants rent with confidence

New guidance is available for private renters in England today to help you rent with confidence.

Who’s it for?

The guidance has been produced by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) and provides a checklist of the most important and common aspects that renters should be aware of when looking for private rented accommodation or entering in to an assured shorthold tenancy (AST) agreement – the most commonly used tenancy agreement in the private sector.

What will I get from it?

This guidance aims to provide a clearer understanding about what questions to ask, what your rights are, and what responsibilities you have as a tenant in order to help create a positive relationship with your landlord. It also outlines what to do if something goes wrong during the tenancy or if you experience any common issues or problems.

It contains lots of detailed information about what you should consider:

>before you start searching for a property–  whether through  letting agent or directly from a landlord;

>once you’ve found a place– including what important documentation you should receive from your landlord (which of course includes information about your deposit);

>during your tenancy–  including your rights and what’s expected of you, and how to deal with any problems or issues if they arise;

>Once the tenancy is coming to an end–what to do if you want to stay or leave, how to go about getting your deposit back and, importantly, how you should leave the property if you move out.

Fear not

The guidance also contains key information about your legal rights and protection should you experience problems during the tenancy and where to go for help if:

  • You have financial problems
  • You’re concerned about the safety of your property
  • You’re being harassed by your landlord or you fear you are being forced out of the property illegally.
