Housing Advice

Guidance for tenants, self-help tools, debt prevention and information on low interest loans.

The government has brought forward a package of measures to protect renters affected by coronavirus (COVID-19). For those privately renting (and those in social housing accommodation), this means they will not be forced out of their home. There is specific guidance on this as well as more general advice on landlords and tenants rights and responsibilities during the COVID-19 outbreak.
