Advice for other tenants and homeowners
Most people who rent their homes in Northern Ireland rent from a private landlord, the Housing Executive or a housing association.
However, there are other kinds of rental arrangements. Not everyone who pays rent is a legal tenant. You’ll have different rights depending on whether you’re a licensee, a sub-tenant or someone living on a permanent residential caravan site. Some homeowners will also have a rental agreement or lease for the land that their property sits on.
