I would like to rent a property as soon as possible?

I would like to rent a property as soon as possible however we have a problem. My partner is in full time employment but he doesn't have a permanent contract although he has worked there for just over a year. We have tried to rent a property on Alderman Close, Beeston but the agency said no due to temporary contract even after we offered 6 months rent upfront and double the deposit. We are hugely worried as of what to do as we desperately need a home, anyone have any ideas? Kind regards.

  • You could ask your partner's employer to write a letter stating that he is employed as proof? Alternatively you could try a number of dirrent agents as each one will have different requirements. You could also offer to provide a guarantor.

  • Hi AaliyahHaema, The important thing is to not get disheartened by your rejection so far. Remember that not all lettings agents are the same. There are no hard and fast rules for this sort of thing, and it all comes down to what individual agents require - some will be stricter than others with their desires from tenants. The best thing to do, as recommended above, is to go from agent to agent and just ask if you will be suitable under their criteria. This will save you being disappointed if you end up being rejected once you put an application in again. Other things you can do include offering a few months worth of rent up front, giving a few references from previous landlords and agents or providing a guarantor who does meet the criteria and will be liable for your rental payments. Many thanks, Scott
