Safer Renting


Safer Renting is the only service of its kind and, with the need for private tenant support services growing all the time, Safer Renting are committed to strengthening rights and access to justice for people exploited by rogue landlords, making private renting safe for all.

They work build the strength and resilience of our communities by keeping residents in their homes and off the streets. Their service is accredited and independently audited by Advice Quality Standard.

Safer Renting are experts in private sector housing law but are not a legal practice or regulated legal service. They're unable to conduct litigation on behalf of clients. If we believe you need legal representation Safer Renting will try to signpost you to solicitors’ practices.

Safer Renting is not a direct access or self-referral service. The advocacy service is usually paid for by local authorities who make referrals to our service.

Safer Renting can help with:
Prevent homelessness, particularly by intervening in illegal evictions.
Support private renters to negotiate better conditions in their homes.
Enable private renters to leave a criminal landlord on their own terms, with compensation whenever possible.
Inform government policy and best practice by analysing and communicating how criminal landlords are exploiting the London housing crisis at the expense of tenants.
