Want to let us know about your renting experiences?

Have you had a good or bad experience with a Letting Agent / Landlord? You can let the Student Advice Centre know with their online form.

If your experience is about a current tenancy it is important that you attempt to resolve the issues.

Alternatively there are also services such as Shelter and Citizens Advice that you can seek advice from.
