Information for private tenants

The Edinburgh Housing Advice Partnership welcomes private tenants.
At EHAP helping you keep your home is our priority.


Is EHAP for you?

  • Are you a private tenant living in the Edinburgh area?
  • Are you struggling to manage your rent payments?
  • Are you concerned that loss of employment, ill health, debt or other factors could place your home at risk?
  • Are you being harassed by your landlord / feel unsafe in your home?
  • Uncertain you are getting all the benefits you are entitled to?

As a private tenant you have certain rights depending on the type of tenenacy agreement you have, whether or not you live with your landlord, and how long you have lived there.  You may also be entitled to certain benefits that can help you manage the cost of maintaining your home.  At EHAP, our housing advisers are here to help you assess your situation, understand your options, and reach the decisions which suit you.

Worried about rent arrears?

Whatever your situation, our message is the same: if you are having financial problems you need to act quickly. If you fall behind with your rent payments your home could be at risk.
