HOUSING TOP TIPS

  • Choose your housemates carefully. Remember you'll be living with them for at least a year.
  • Visit the property. What sounds good on paper might not be so good in real life. Have a look and ask about anything you're unsure of.
  • Read your contract carefully. The Advice Centre can check your tenancy agreement if there is anything you need assistance with.
  • Take photos/videos of the meter readings and your room in case of any disputes at the end of your tenancy.

Hate crimes and incidents are hurtful, confusing and frightening. By reporting them you may be able to prevent future incidents from happening to someone else. You will also help the police to understand the extent of hate crime in your local area so they can better respond to it.
