Find a private landlord

We know that sometimes finding a private landlord can be difficult. Because of this we have developed the Trusted Landlord scheme to help you find a property which is of a good and safe standard.

By choosing a trusted landlord within the scheme you can be assured that they take pride in the ownership of their property. The landlord will work with you if you have concerns of the disrepair of safety of your rented home. 

All you need to do in return is understand your responsibilities in the community you live and be a considerate neighbour. 

You can find a list of landlords in the scheme below, contact them directly to see if they have any available properties:
