My situation is basically this - marriage separation, retired, looking to rent.
I’ve found a flat I’m interested in (waiting for a response), and I have a couple of concerns.
1)References. I’m retired, therefore no employee references can be had. Though I do get a private pension, which I believe is well over the minimum needed for the property I’m looking at
2) Guarantor. There is only one person I can think of that might be willing to do this, if not, what then?
My credit rating is excellent, no debts at all, or missed payments on anything for as long as I can remember. Mortgage was paid off last August.
Would offering several months rent in advance, while continuing to pay monthly, ease a landlords concerns over the two “problems” I have. Is this something that can be done (my idea, not the landlords)
If anyone has any ideas, I’d be grateful
