Private Renting

Private rented accommodation is likely to be available on a much more frequent basis than social housing and could potentially resolve your current housing situation. If you were to look for housing at a rent that is no higher than the local housing allowance rate you may be able to claim benefits towards the rent. There is an online calculator available at www.gov.uk/benefits-adviser which you can use to check what benefits you would be entitled to.

The BBC also provide a handy website which will help you identify where you may be able to find affordable accommodation: www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-23234033
