To find accommodation in Leeds you can either apply for social housing from the local authority (Leeds City Council); housing from a Housing Association; or rent private accommodation from a landlord or letting agency. You can also buy a house using a mortgage. It is important to know your options and also what your rights are when you live in different types of accommodation.

If you have just received your asylum decision, please look at the section for New Refugees. This explains the other things you must do before you can find somewhere to live – like getting a National Insurance Number, claiming benefits, and opening a bank account. See our section for New Refugees here.
