Renting a property in the private sector

There are properties for rent in most parts of Inverclyde.  Information on vacancies can usually be found:

  • In local newspapers;
  • On information boards in supermarkets and shops;
  • From solicitors/property centres; and
  • Internet searches.

Rents vary according to the size of the property and local area, and mostly do not include council tax or the cost of utilities such as gas or electricity.  These have to be paid for separately by the tenant.

You may be eligible for Housing Benefit or for Council Tax Benefit.
