    I don't have any relevant experience, but a mature student with a university place and two pets is about as safe a bet as it's possible to have.

    I'd make sure the income covers the extra cleaning you'll need to do at the end of the rental because of the pets and plan for that.

    I think letting to anyone who is going to leave the country needs to be cash up front - there is just no chance to get your money if they leave without paying.

    Americans would not be so surprised by such a request.

    Never mention anything that is unrelated to your question. People here love to go off on a tangent and end up discussing a totally different question

    lol, wish I hadn't mentioned the pets now! It was only to explain why the student was having difficulty sourcing a property, the assumption about the quarantine was mine and quite possibly incorrect, but I was really hoping just for pointers about any other (none animal related!) things to be aware of when letting to an international student.

    Please read the OP again before having your holier than thou rant at me;

    If the student is bringing 2 pets from the United States into the UK there is no quarantine. The OP is incorrect.

    Well that's all sorted out then.

    I've just had a quick look and my understanding is that providing the pet has been prepared properly and all documents in order, there is no quarantine period for pets from the USA as it is one of the listed countries.

    Just reread my post.
    No sarcasm intended!

    That's great experience to share.
    Thanks.

    My kitchen sink has been blocked for almost 3 weeks.

    The landlord/agent has been dragging his feet getting a plumber out and when someone did come, they confirmed my suspicions that it's something more just needing to pour some unblocker down (this is why I haven't called someone out myself...

    Thanks for taking the time to reply.

    I am at the early stages of my thinking on this, and have no experience of building before. TBH I hadn’t considered the disruption element a great deal yet, but that is a fair point.

    It would be an extension to the current house. Either...

    Hi all, I have a rented house - three bed end terrace, which has been rented to the same lady and her children for over a decade, with no major problems on either end.

    There is a plot of land next to the house that I am currently in the process of purchasing off the council. I would like...

    Are you certain it's not you that's blocked it? Why would you not get someone out and pay them yourself? If it turns out to be someone else's fault, then you can forward the bill....

  • Reply to Tenant referencing affordability
    by Hudson01
    Have you asked more about the CCJ ? Was it for rent ....... is it just one ....... i tend to not trust guarantors, i do not take them and only let to those who can stand on their own two feet in terms of affordability..... it is a choice though.

    Hi all,
    I have found a tenant through open rent and he failed referencing due to CCJ. He got a garauntor who earns 46,271 pounds per annum and the rent is 1095. The rent guard referencing did through open rent has declined the garauntor as unsuitable due to less income. They want 4 times the monthly...

    I think you need to get to know your market. In one area I have been letting to Chinese nationals for 25 years. Never had a single problem.
