What to think about before you start renting
We strongly recommend you come to London in person to look for a room, flat, or house to rent from a private landlord or agent.
It’s essential that you view the accommodation before you pay any money, to ensure the accommodation offer is genuine and the accommodation is good to live in. Listen to our tips on what to think about before you start renting.
