Find private rented housing
Renting a property from a private landlord can be an ideal form of tenure for many people. For those who are not in priority need of housing, there can be a long wait for a tenancy from a registered social landlord. For those wanting to own their own home, saving for a deposit may take time. Renting a flat from a private landlord is often the only option for temporary visitors to the district, for example students at the University of Cumbria or local colleges.
Nearly all of Carlisle‘s privately rented housing is owned by individual landlords who advertise vacancies in the local press. Some estate agents also keep lists of privately rented accommodation.
