hello all ! 🙂
I will be soon moving to UK for a new job (Crawley area).
I will have a long term contract as engineer (32000 gross salary) and my partner will follow me to find a job (in CAD, surveying).
So at the beginning only me will have a contract and we want to rent a house upfront (to avoid paying twice agent fees, paying upfront 2 deposits etc).
As I come back from expatriation and my partner had 10 years on the job, we have enough money for him to not worry about rent at the beginning.
So, my question is: Can I rent a house of 1.100 pounds (I know my future colleagues if alone rent around 800), as we will have the financial situation, but it will be only my work contract to sign the tenancy agreement ? Just a technicality as we will have the money.
We’re french, and in France, they can ask so much papers etc because we can break easily the tenancy agreement. I understand that in England, you’re bound so less risk for landlords.
For credit history, we are clear in UK or France !
Thanks a lot,
Good day Amandaline,
Thanks for your post. We would work on a 30x multiplier.
On an income of £32,000 this would represent a rental up to £1,067.00pcm
Paperwork would still be requested by us just to prove income matches declared amount.
We understand wanting to avoid 2 sets of fees, this might be something you could discuss with the agent in advance. The best thing to do in any rental is communicate so everyone understands the situation.
