Hi, well things look like they could be moving along for us, yay. I noticed a couple of things that have been concerning me re rentals. Firstly I know of alot of people have bought references from their banks, now we are just clawing our way out of a bad patch finacially and whilst we are still probably a year or so away from actually moving I can't imagine a reference from my bank will b e glowing. We are in rented accomodation so can get references from this and probably our previous landlord so that would be over 4 years worth of references, but will not having bank references hold us back?
Also we are hoping that hubby will come over witha job, but in reality we know that is unlikely, so it will be best to have a few months rent behind us. Luckily though my husabdn is a citizen by descent, now I haven't researched this in great detail but I believe this entitles him to help from benefits if it became necessary, does this give us a better footing to secure a rental????
We're hoping in an ideal world that hubby will geta joba nd we can come out with onlya months rent and deposit as that will mean a whole laod less saving this end before the move. Has anyone done this and managed to get a rental or di anyone do it and struggle???
