  • Difficulty in renting a house

    Good evening All,

    My two children and I, one of whom is a minor, have been trying to move to another city in the UK for almost two months.

    We are having many difficulties, it seems that even giving a year's rent in advance is not good for both the landlord and the agency.
    The houses are taken immediately even as soon as they are put on the market within an hour.

    We have been living in the UK for two years and have pre-settled status.
    I cannot understand why it is so difficult to rent a house.

    Thank you for your time and help.
    Take care.

    Afternoon,

    Unfortunately there appears to be a housing shortage in the UK, although more so in some areas than in others.

    Frankly, I am susprised to see they are not accepting an offer of a year's rent in advance, as far as I'm aware, such an offer tempts most landlords, even when the applicants are bankrupt or full of CCJs (who are the ones who generally offer to pay this much rent in advance).

    What arguments are they giving you for not offering you the properties?

        Their response was: the house is no longer available

            Morning,

            I was just wondering whether it was something to do with them not wishing to accept the share code or something along those lines, as those things need ironing out, if you see what I mean.

              If you mean the sharing code to verify that I am eligible to stay in the UK they have not asked me.

                Yes, the pre-settled status share code.

                  No agency has asked for the pre-settled status share code
