The first step to finding a home is often to look in the local papers and notice boards in newsagents windows and supermarkets where accommodation to let may be advertised. You may find the Surrey Advertiser newspaper website useful for searching for properties. Click Surrey Advertiser to search for available properties. There are also many lettings agents who let accommodation in the local area, although some are unwilling to accept people who receive Housing Benefit to help pay the rent. Details of lettings agents can be found in the Yellow Pages and Thompson Local Directory or from the Housing Advice Centre. You can also try www.gumtree.com who have lists of properties to rent.
If you are currently living in unsuitable accommodation or you are unable to afford a deposit to secure private rented accommodation you may be eligible for assistance under the council's Homes 4U scheme. Click private renting for more information.
If you have no where to sleep tonight, been sleeping rough or have no fixed address the Guildford Homeless Outreach and Support Team (HOST) may be able to help. They can advise on options, find accommodation and access other support. For more information click here or contact the Housing Advice Centre.
