View Full Version : Salary and references

03-03-2007, 04:44 AM
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,
