Renting privately

Our Housing Options team can provide you with advice and support if you find suitable private rented accommodation. We may be able to offer financial help for payments of rent in advance and deposits. You may be able to claim benefits.

You can look for private rented accommodation online on the following websites:

You can also look on Facebook Marketplace and search local Facebook groups for people offering accommodation.

Local newsagents often have adverts in their window for people who are looking to rent our rooms or properties.

If you are looking for accommodation online, please be aware of fraudulent adverts and exercise caution before making any payment.

Why information is on a different website
We are in the process of adding information to this new unitary council website. Some pages will give you a link back to a previous council website to help you find what you need. Read more about the changes.
