In Northern Ireland, you have four main housing options:
- you may want to rent property from a private landlord
- you may have accommodation supplied as part of your employment
- you may seek to access social housing from the Housing Executive or a housing association (some restrictions for persons from abroad may apply)
- you may wish to buy a property.
Problems and difficulties may arise for you across these tenure types. Information contained in this section may help you resolve your problem. However, if you are facing serious difficulties, you should speak to an adviser as soon as possible to get more information specific to your circumstances.
The Housing Executive has a duty to provide advice on homelessness and its prevention to anyone in Northern Ireland who asks for it.
