I have let a flat successfully for the last 4 years always via word of mouth. I have had it listed on OR now for quite a while and had quite a lot of interest but the whole process falls apart when I issue the guarantor documents - usually to a pair of students who have separate guarantors. The hurdle is neither guarantor wants to be exposed to the risk generated by the other tenant.
I know I can ask for rent upfront but then surely that only moves the potential issue further down the line …
The guarantor document I have been using is issued by NLRA and have tried using both their Limited and Unlimited guarantees.
Any advice appreciated
