We’ve put together some information to get you started. It is also available in leaflet form here: Fearless Flathunting and 10 Tips to Avoid Housing Scams. If you find you need more help, or if you just want to chat things through before you make a decision then please contact The Advice Centre.
Please note, you might sometimes see adverts for private accommodation appearing on the SRC website, including our advice webpages. These are simply adverts, paid for by the provider – the SRC Advice Centre does not endorse or promote any particular accommodation provider. If you need advice regarding a tenancy with any provider, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
