How old do you need be to rent a flat?

My boyfriend is 15 (16 in Febuary) and his parents are kicking him out. I just thought I'd have a look and find out.

  • Usually 18 unfortunately. Speak with your local council and they may have some suggestions if he is being forced to leave.

  • Hi, We think it would be very difficult to privately rent a flat at the age of 15 due to a potential lack of income. We would advise you speak to your local council.

  • He could rent a flat but he would not be old enough to sign the rental paper but he could if he had a guarantor. They would be worried about lack of income unless he's on a steady wage.
