Renting Done Right: Are you looking for a house to rent in the local community? Renting in Birmingham can feel daunting, but don’t worry - Marks Out Of Tenancy is here to help! What is Marks Out Of Tenancy? Choosing your next student house, landlord or letting agent is a big decision, so it’s crucial to gather as much information as possible before signing that contract. Marks Out Of Tenancy is an online review system for tenants to rate and leave feedback about: the property; landlord; letting agent; the area & what it’s like to live in. Marks Out Of Tenancy also allows current renters to communicate with incoming tenants, so as to provide feedback and a score out of 10, based on your experience in the property. This is a great way to find a student house and landlord which are a good fit for you and your new housemates, before you sign on the dotted line. Here at the Guild we want to ensure that we provide the best and most useful advice to support not only your student journey but also your renting journey, so be sure to explore the Marks Out Of Tenancy website and also leave your review!
