Hello all


I've seen a property I'm really interested in renting.


I spoke the letting agent today and they feel that I won't pass the referencing stage of the application, as I am part of a partnership, but am effectively self employed. The letting agent says they will need two years' accounts, but the company only started earlier this year.


I've advised them that they can see my bank statements to show money going in and out and talk to my current letting agent, as I've been 2 months ahead on my monthly rental payments for the past two years and have always been praised at inspection time for the cleanliness of the property.


The letting agent doesn't think that the above will make any difference, and the only way round it might be to offer six months rent + six weeks deposit, which is over £5,000. That's my savings and more wiped out.


Not sure what to do, as I'm bound to encounter similar problems with every letting agent.


Thanks in advance

Ask the agent to ask the landlord what he will accept. Personally I would be happy with a previous landlords reference saying you have consistently paid, rather than a set accounts saying you have the ability to pay.
