How many months deposit is needed?

I am currently in Cyprus trying to sell my land in order to buy a house in Nottingham UK. I will be in the UK by the end of June, my question is if my land doesn't sell by then how many months deposit will I need to rent a house? Thank you in advance Helen.

  • Hi Helen, A lot of it depends on if you have previous credit history here in the UK. Other things that would help you rent are items such as employee contracts or references, ideally from a previous landlord. If you have none of these you would have to start thinking if anyone in the UK would act as a guarantor for you. You could also try offering a big advancement in rental payments, such as 6 to 12 months. This downpayment would be a comfort to a landlord when looking at the lack of references. You'll obviously have to prove who you are with some form of ID. Every agent/landlord is different so just keep asking around what they would like. Good luck with the move, and I hope everything goes smoothly :-) Jonathan.
