My wife and I are currently in Amsterdam but moving to London around December.
I’m a self employed IT contractor and we have a small King Charles Cavalier so I’m expecting some difficulties finding a place to rent.
From a landlords perspective, what could I do to help my case and look more attractive as a tenant?
My current plan is the following:
- I earn quite well but most of my clients are on net 45 so I tend to pay myself in drips and drabs so I’m planning on building a buffer and paying good sized salary consistently until we move so my bank statements look good
- I have two clients with indefinite contracts which I could provide
- My current landlord is happy to provide us with a good reference
- We have some friends living in the UK who’ve helped us navigate the move and could provide us with a character reference
Any advice or suggestions on how we provide additional peace of mind would be much appreciated.
