Look around

Be realistic

  • What can you really afford?
  • Remember you need to be able to pay your Council Tax, insurances, bills, food and travel as well as your rent.
  • Don’t overstretch yourself
  • If you are claiming Local Housing Allowance ensure your allowance covers the rent or you can afford to pay the additional if it doesn’t.
