Private rents in this borough can be very expensive. From 1 April 2011 the rules are changing and most people will find that the rents in, or near, Central London will be restricted.

There are rules that limit the size of the property and the maximum rent we can pay. These depend on your age, who lives with you, and the property's location. It is important that you do not move into a property and then find that your rent is too high, or the property is considered too large for your needs.
