How to rent a house?

If you’ve rented before, you’ll know all too well just how taxing navigating the world of lettings can be. It doesn’t help that the law is constantly changing – so you’ll need to keep your wits about you and know exactly what your tenant rights are ahead of time.

But you won't have to do it alone.

Pittis have been looking after tenants for years. With thousands of positive reviews on TrustPilot, you could say we’re rather good at it.

So, what makes us so trusted by tenants? Well, for a start, we understand that this isn’t just a property that you’re renting – it’s your home. Your landlord may own where you live but you’re the one who shuts the curtains at night and answers the door to the milkman.

We’re committed to making our customers happy, safe in the knowledge that if their boiler ever breaks down or washing machine needs fixing, we’ll have this sorted right away.

So, how do you rent a house? There’s only really one thing that you need to remember: rent from a letting agent that you can trust – someone like Pittis.

Now that’s covered, let’s get on with finding you a new home.
