This guide, from gov.uk, is for people who are about to rent a house or flat. It gives a rent checklist of what to do before, during and at the end of a tenancy, as well as what to do if there are any problems.
This guide will help you to understand what questions to ask, what your rights are, and what responsibilities you have. This will help you create a positive relationship with your landlord, but we also tell you how to get help if things go wrong.
When you rent a home, people sometimes expect you to make a quick decision, or to sign documents before you’ve had time to think about them.
The full guide can be read here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/how-to-rent/how-to-rent-the-checklist-for-renting-in-england and, once you start renting, should be provided to you by the landlord.
