What is this?

Hey! As tenant's ourselves, we've found ourselves in sticky or questionable situations while renting (especially as a student tenant), we thought it might be helpful to compile a list of sources and extra information to help you make more informed choices while renting.

Preface: depending on when you started renting, your rights may differ.
