Private landlord advice

If you are a private landlord we can offer advice on issues concerning landlord/tenant responsibility or information about the physical condition of your property.

Private tenant advice

Private landlords offer a wide range of accommodation in most parts of the Dudley borough. If you are on benefits or a low income you can find out whether you will be eligible for Housing Benefit before you commit yourself to taking on a tenancy. We also provide a regularly updated list of approved landlords which is available from Dudley Council Plus or the housing desk at Brierley Hill, Halesowen and Stourbridge libraries.

Here you'll find useful information and advice for private tenants.
