Private Rent

Renting a property from a private landlord is an option for anyone over the age of 16 and there are all sorts of different properties available from flats, houses, shared accommodation and bedsits, to rooms rented out in the landlord's house.

Fife Housing Group offer properties to let in the private sector through their subsidiary, PACT Enterprises.

When renting privately you will generally be expected to pay a deposit (usually equal to one month’s rent) and a month’s rent in advance before moving into the property.
