Rent

You must pay rent to your landlord in return for living in the property. If you stop paying your rent, are late with a payment or do not pay in full, your landlord may begin eviction proceedings against you.

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.

If you are awarded LHA, you will usually have the right to choose whether you want the allowance to be paid to you or directly to your landlord.

Proprietarii și agenții de obicei cer chiriașilor plata la începutul fiecărei luni. Când începe un contract nou de închiriere, înseamnă că chiria pe o lună va trebui plătită în plus pe lângă depozit.

The amount of housing benefit that is paid to single people aged under 35 who rent privately is often restricted. There are some exemptions that apply.

Наемодателите или агенти обикновено изискват наемателите да плащат наем в началото на всеки месец. При нов договор за наем това означава, че първия месец наем ще трябва да се плати в допълнение към депозита.

Be sure that you can afford your monthly rent, rates and any other associated costs. If you will be applying for housing benefit to help you meet the costs of your rent, make sure that you find out how much housing benefit you are likely to be entitled to under the Local Housing Allowance rules. Housing benefit will not usually cover your full monthly rent.

If you're renting a property as part of a group, you need to pay close attention to the tenancy agreement. The wording on this agreement can control what happens if one of the group moves out. In some cases, the rest of the tenants can be made responsible for paying the extra rent as well as any rent that the former tenant hasn't paid.
