Looking for private rented housing
Looking for private rented accommodation
If you have little prospect of getting social housing and cannot afford home ownership then renting from a private landlord is the main housing option available to you.
Over 25% of Londoners rent privately and the flexibility and choice of location and property make it the quickest and easiest housing option available for most people.
Rents in central London are very high, and unaffordable for most families on average pay or getting welfare benefits. However, it is possible to find affordable private rented accommodation in some areas of London or outside London altogether.
