A place of your own: intro

If you are looking for a place to live, or you have been kicked out or are homeless, look in the Housing / Homeless? section.

Independent living

You may be moving into a new room, flat or house. You could be on your own, or sharing with friends or new people. You may be starting out as part of a new couple or family. It may be that you are living in a hostel but want to get things ready for when you have a permanent place.

Whatever your circumstances you will have rights and responsibilities. That is, there are laws that protect you as a tenant, for example against unlawful eviction, and there are things you are responsible for such as paying your rent on time and not disturbing the neighbours.
