I'm going to need to rent a place soon and I've been told that because I'm an internet poker layabout it's might be difficult finding a nice place. Can any landlords, letting agents or poker players who rent give me any advice? I haven't rented since I was a student 15 years ago and I haven't had a proper job for 3 and a half years.
Paying 6 months rent up front persuades most landlords.
If you don't want to do that then bank statements and your own accounts will help. Smaller agents and private landlords are easier to deal with than the larger agents, who tend to treat Homelet credit checks as the main assesment means.
