Hello. We are a young British family (couple + 1 infant) with good financial status and savings.
We currently live and work abroad and are looking to move back to UK in order to establish a business. We have good tenancy history in the UK, but that is 3 years ago and older. We also maintained a credit card and positive credit score.
We look to rent an entire property, however we are afraid of referencing process. We have a good credit history but no employment, as we intend to be moving back to UK from abroad and start a business instead of a job. We have good savings, but do not have relatives in the UK and would not like to ask friends to be guarantors / etc.
If we offer some advance rent payment, would that be ok, or would we be deemed fail referencing due to lack of recent history and current UK employment?
Which is the advised approach looking for a property to rent?
Thank you in advance.
