Living in the UK and London in particular has many benefits but can be quite expensive as London is one of the most expensive places in the world to live.
Renting a house, apartment or flat in the capital can be very expensive but there are benefits from this if you do not want the huge layout of a mortgage with your bank with a massive deposit to lay out at the beginning.
Renting a property would benefit someone who does not to be tied down and will be free to move after a short contract. This could be a short term 3 – 6 months at the minimum.
You will have to go through a number of checks to see if you are suitable a suitable candidate to be a tenant. You will need to have a credit check first and if you have an old landlord they may be contacted as a reference. Another term maybe that your employer may also contacted as proof that you are employed and can afford the rent payments.
One landlord, Londoner Andrew Charalambous, makes it more simple for a tenant to rent a property from his company. He believes that by not performing a credit check or or asking for a reference.
His company believes that by doing this it helps the relationship of the tenant and property owner and the relationship lasts longer than using an average estate agent or landlord.
