The process for selling a home is generally the same for all people, whatever the reason for the sale. Most people will use an agent to market the property and you will have to pay a fee for this. You can sell your home privately but it can be harder to find buyers this way.
Renting a home from a private landlord or through an agent could be an option, but there are potential problems which you should be aware of before taking on a tenancy. Know your rights and responsibilities.
Get advice immediately if you think you might become homeless. The Housing Executive has a legal responsibility to give you advice and information on homelessness or you can speak to our advisers at Housing Rights. With the right help, you may be able to stay in or return to your home.
Young people, and especially young people leaving care, can be at an increased risk of homelessness and of being exploited because they are homeless. Social Services and the Housing Executive share responsibility for looking after young people who are homeless. There are different responsibilities, depending on your age and how long you've been in care, but these organisations should work together to find you somewhere to live.
