Content

In finding your own home there can be different pathways, you can either find your own property in a private search independently or through a letting agent; or you might apply for the social housing register. In this activity you will learn about the processes of both and what you might experience you property search. This will help you in knowing what to expect, when and what signs might indicate that a selected home or letting agent might not be suited for you.
