Online checkers

Our assessment tools can help you work out your housing rights, helping you check what kind of tenancy you have and if the council has to house you.

What kind of tenancy do I have?

To know your rights as a tenant, you need to know what kind of tenancy agreement you have. Our tenancy checker can help you to work out which one you are likely to have.

Does the council have to house you?

If you don't have anywhere to live, your local council may have a duty to house you. Our free assessment helps you work out what you're entitled to. It takes only a few minutes and is totally confidential.
