Find private rented accommodation

In Harrow there are twice as many privately rented homes available than council or housing association homes, so you are more likely to find a new home within the private rented sector.

You can find details of available properties:

  • online e.g Rightmove, Spare Room and Gumtree
  • in local newspapers
  • in shop windows
  • in letting agencies

Before signing a tenancy agreement make sure the property is suitable for your household, and that you can afford to pay the rent as well as your other bills and expenses. If you are on a low income you may be entitled to housing benefit.
