Housing options

Get help as soon as you can if you are worried that you might become homeless. Talk to someone about your rights and options. You might be able to make things better in your current home. 

Victoria, a housing adviser with Housing Rights recently graduated from University. We've asked her what ten things she wishes she'd known when she started out as a private renter. 

You can start your research by checking out property websites online. This will give you an idea of the properties within your budget that are available in your area. Visit estate agents in the area that you want to live in, but remember that agents are working on the seller’s behalf and are trying to get the highest possible price for the property.

The law gives housing association tenants certain rights. Secure tenants have more rights than introductory tenants. You are an introductory tenant for the first year of your tenancy. After 12 months you’ll become a secure tenant.

You can apply for social housing online at the Housing Executive's website. You may be entitled to extra help with housing if you have nowhere to live or your current home is unsuitable. 

Buying a home is stressful. You'll need a trusted solicitor to help and you will have to pay lots of fees and charges.

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.

There are a few different schemes that may be of assistance if you are planning to buy a home in the near future. These include shared ownership schemes, where you part buy and part rent, a rent to buy scheme that will pay you a rebate on some of the rent you’ve paid and government backed savings schemes which will give you a bonus to add to your deposit.
