Do I get credit checked if I rent any property?

I am a home owner and I want to downsize due to debt problems, I want to rent my property out and rent something smaller myself. Will my bad credit affect me doing this?

  • Three options are available. You can rent from a private landlord who won’t do a credit check, you can use a guarantor, or you can offer a much larger deposit like six months rent in advance, maybe less will do. Not all rental agencies do credit checks, they all have different criteria’s.

  • Homewhere is right but almost all agents do them. Private might be best or the guarantor route. Good luck.
