  • Hi Steph_holbein, There isn't really an exact amount that you need to rent a property, but most landlords will want you to prove that you can pay the bills. It's common to ask for proof of employment, as well as a payslip from work. If they aren't sure that you're making enough to pay your rent and other bills, they might not offer you a lease. Alternatively, they may ask that you get a guarantor to pay the rent if you miss a payment. Many thanks, Dan
