Renting in Plymouth & Teignbridge

PDFPrintE-mail

If you think you may qualify for social housing, your first port of call will be to fill out an application with Devon Home Choice.

If you do not qualify, or would simply prefer Private Rented Accommodation, there are a number of options available depending on your resources and situation.

We have put together an information sheet may be helpful if you are thinking about renting in Plymouth or Teignbridge. When looking for accommodation there are many things to consider, particularly if this is your first time renting in the private sector. Do take the time to go into a new tenancy with as much information as possible, ensuring the property meets your needs, is affordable and the landlord ideally registered with a Landlord’s Association and/or the agent with ARLA or a similar regulatory body.

Download our information sheet Thinking About Renting, and take a look that at the useful  information below.
