TenantsTips is a website that provides independent information and advice for tenants who currently rent or people who are looking to rent houses, flats, apartments and other residential property.

We are becoming one of the largest online information sources for tenants and would-be tenants with over 90,000 registered members worldwide because we concentrate on tenants needs.

Our goal is to address the needs of the tenant and to help ensure they don't fall foul of bad landlord and agency practices. We cover everything from housing benefit, Tenancy Deposits, Letting Agents and the various Property, Landlord and Tenant Acts. We also have a tenants forum where people can discuss issues and pages where you can search for properties to rent and so much more. If you can't find what you're looking for use the site search and enter a keyword about what you are looking for and we will find the right articles for you.
