How long must I have been employed before I can rent a property?

I have been in the UK since December 1999, living in a hotel. I start work on 1 March. Can I start looking for a place to rent now?

  • This would depend on the landlords criteria on the tenant, but most landlords will require that you have been in employment. Perhaps you can offer to pay 6 months in advance. Hope this was helpful, ThePureGroup

  • It all depends on the criteria of agent or landlord. As long as you can prove you are receiving a regular income you should not have a problem finding a property
