  • You must be 18 years or older to enter in to any form of contract in the UK. However, depending on your circumstances you may be granted a contract of necessity. Also, if you have someone who would be willing to act as a guarantor they could hold a common law tenancy in their name, with you as a permitted occupier. Having said this, most agents/landlords would not be willing to go down this route due to the potential complications it presents.

  • 18 without a guarantor or some landlords may look at 16 with a guarantor.

  • A very good question, and I agree with both answers above. You must be 18 to enter a contract in the UK, however in special circumstances, you may be accepted with a guarantor at the age of 16.
