You can find private rented properties through solicitors, estate agencies, the local press, and the web.
You can also use the internet to try to find roommates and flat-shares. This type of home can be particularly useful if you are on a low income, and cannot afford to live independently.
You need to ensure you can afford any private sector housing you take on.
Check your landlord is registered
