If you rent your home, your rights and responsibilities will depend on who your landlord is and what type of renting agreement you have.  Most renting agreements are ‘occupation contracts’ but there are some exceptions.

Find out in this section about the different types of renting agreements and what your rights and responsibilities are. 

This section will also help you work out your rights if you are sharing accommodation and how to end an occupation contract.
