We are moving over Mid December and have short term accommodation until Mid Feb. In that time we need to look for a long term rental property, but as we have never rented a property before, I am not sure what we will need. Do we need a reference of any kind, or a permanent job etc? Or are most rental companies happy if you just pay your bond and the first couple of months rent up front.
It's just I am worried that because we have never rented we will be unable to provide a reference from a previous landlord?
Any help would be great.
