  • Your best bet is to check local classified advert websites. For example, Gumtree. Also, check the back of your local paper for private landlord listings.

  • Depends why you want to contact them direct? If a Landlord has instructed an agent then typically it is because he wants nothing to do with the process of tenant finding, or perhaps past business relationships means this is a prefered option of letting his/her property.......If you have seen a property you like via an Agent can I ask."Why would you not want to talk with the Agent about it?"

  • If you are an existing tenant of the property, the chances are that the name and address could be stated on the Tenancy Agreement. Failing that you could visit your local Land Registry office - as long as the property is registered then you should be able to buy the title deeds for £4

  • Look to the local papers, adverts in shop windows and websites advertising local property for sale. Gum Tree I believe are a regional website where a lot of private landlords operate from.

  • Hi there, if you are looking for a property to rent but do not want to use an agent, many private landlords advertise on mediums such as gumtree, friday and and local newspapers. Many landlords can also be found on social media forums such as twitter and facebook. Just look for relevant groups and discussions boards.
