  • Salary and references

    I was wondering about the rules that referencing agencies follow, regarding your salary. For example, if I have a stable job, no bad credit history and my salary (before taxes and other expenses) per month is X, what is the highest rent that I would be "able" to pay, living alone, without a guarantor requirement? For some companies like MARAS I hear that it's 1/3 of your gross monthly salary. Is it true? Any more information about it? Thank you.

    Well, I don't believe that my 16-month old question was stupid or inappropriate...

      Sixteen months later and you still need an answer!

      Your best bet is to ask each LL or LA that have an property you are interested in, but yes I work off (Experian/Endlsleigh) the figures you have quoted.

      However, I know some LA's just look at bank statements, or verify full time employment, and some LL's just ask a few questions, so there is no set in stone answer!

      Hope you found a place...!

      Kind regards,
