  • Hey James, I’m guessing that you worry that you’ve got adverse credit history and you don’t want to use an agent who might find out about it. I’m afraid the short answer is really that any agent, certainly any decent agent, is going to protect their landlord by carrying out all of the relevant checks and they can do that by checking your credit file. What I suggest is that you take out an Experian trial, or similar company. You can get a 30 day free trial to check your own credit and it is possible as well, to fix your credit or certainly improve the score. Hope that helps! Jonathan Rolande :-)

  • A guarantor or rent in advance is usually the best option. My experience is that landlords respond to tenants with poor credit much more favorably if they have been honest and upfront from the outset
