Looking to rent with my partner but only one of us has a job

Just wondering if it's possible to rent a place with only one of us working? My partner works full time and I just moved to the area and have interviews lined up this coming week. Would a guarantor cover this as we need to be out of where we currently are ASAP? Thanks.

  • It would depend on your partner's income. As an example we usually say that an applicant will need to earn 2.5x the rental amount, or if they earn between 1.5 and 2.5x they will need a guarantor. Remember that you will also need the money upfront for the deposit and fees. Hope that helps. Martin & Co (UK) Ltd
