Looking to rent privately in Nottingham City?

There are a few quick checks that you should do for any property before you decide to rent it out.

Information on what to look for when viewing a property and load our quick checklist for you to complete before choosing a property to rent.

You should ensure that you have considered all of the criteria that is detailed under our looking for a property section.

Where to start?

We advise you to go through our accreditation bodies first when looking to rent a property. These are properties that have been through the accreditation companies who have recognised that they are above the legal minimum standards.

We ALWAYS advise that you visit a property before agreeing to rent it.

If any changes to the property are agreed to be completed before you move in, you should have this in writing and signed for, or included in the tenancy agreement.

All tenancy deposits should be protected under a tenancy deposit scheme.

It is also a good idea to take photographs of the property as you are moving in to the property and also when you move out. This is in case there are any disputes in relation to the deposit. You may wish to email these to yourself or a trusted person so they are also date logged

You can find more information and advice on renting shared accommodation here.
