Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Renting in Northern Ireland

Renting privately can be a great option for many people.

There is a wide range of rented property available. Make sure you know what type of property you need and what area you would like to live in.

Like any other housing option, renting has its pros and cons. If you're considering renting for the first time, make sure you understand what your basic rights are.

When you start looking for a property, you should be sure about what you want and what you can afford. 

It is essential that you view any property before you decide to rent it. Once you've signed a tenancy agreement, you are bound by its terms and it can be very difficult to get out of the agreement. Don't let yourself be won over by nice decoration and agent patter.
