A new website has been set up by a council purely for private rental sector tenants in one part of London.
The new site makes it easier for people who privately rent in Camden to find out information and advice.
It includes advice from what to look for in a property, talking to your landlord about repairs to dealing with threats of eviction.
Over two thirds of Camden residents privately rent and the council claims that “many”experience problems with their landlords.
A recent survey of private tenants highlighted that 55 per cent of respondents said that the issues they raised were not fixed. This included problems with gas and electric, mould and heating.
A council statement says: “We want private tenants to have safe and decent homes and to know where to go for advice if they are experiencing poor housing conditions.”
The new dedicated website, Camden Private Renters, provides information and guidance, to help private tenants before they move into a new home, during their tenancy and at the end of their tenancy.
