You will need to go through our referencing process.
We have a duty of care to our landlords to ensure that tenants are able to meet their rental commitments on a monthly basis. And also to ensure that tenants are likely to take good care of their property.
Our referencing process is nothing to worry about, we just need a few details about you, your income and employment details. We are likely to need the following from you:
You will be asked to complete a referencing form which will need to include your current address details and details of your previous landlord, if applicable.
We will also carry out a credit check.
Due to our referencing process and to demonstrate your affordability, you will need to ensure you are in permanent employment with no adverse credit history. Adults in the property will need to meet the minimum combined salary requirements of two-and-a-half times the annual rent for the property. This is worked out using the following calculation: (your share of rent) x 12 x 2.5
For UK students, we can accept UK based guarantors as long as they meet the referencing criteria, have no adverse credit and earn 3 times the annual rent. This is worked out using the following calculation: (your share of rent) x 12 x 3.
If you are a sponsored student, you are able to use a bursary or you have the option to make the rental payments up-front.
If you (the tenant) are a student, or you fail to meet the affordability requirements, you can ask a guarantor to support you. A guarantor (usually a parent or guardian) will agree to take joint responsibility for the rental payments should you fail to make them. Guarantors are required to pay any rent arrears (if the tenant does not pay) and for any damages equating to any more than the deposit.
