Information and Fees
If you are employed, you will need to show a total annual income of at least 30 times the monthly rent. For example if the monthly rent is £900 you need to earn £27,000, to pass referencing. You will need to provide contact details at your place of work to allow your company to confirm your salary.
Self Employed Income: If you are self-employed for less than 1 year, you will need a Guarantor who will be required to pay for the tenancy in advance. If self-employed for more than 2 years you will need either an accountant to confirm your income (accountants reference) or complete an SA302 (Self Assessment) form.

We often get asked questions about the process of renting a property from potential tenants. It is a complicated legal process as well as a big decision for many people. You need to be able to put your trust in the property you rent, the Landlord you rent from and the agent you rent through. We provide clear advice to enable you to have that confidence. If there is anything you wish to know that is not covered on this page please get in touch.
"Douglas and Simmons have been very helpful to us; in our case we were buyers and they supported us for a good 3 months while solicitors sorted things out. They were always approachable and happy to talk to us and helped explain what solicitors were doing, which was very useful. They obviously work as a team and if we ever sell our lovely home we will definitely use them."
