Overcrowding

You might think your accommodation is too small for your household, but legally it may not be classed as overcrowded.

There are rules about the number of people who can stay in a room and the amount of space they need.

If you are living in overcrowded conditions, consider moving to a larger private rented property. You can also apply for housing association accommodation.
