    Default Can you rent accomodation?

    Hi,

    Can you rent accomodation on a visitors permit, or do you need a work permit and proof of income?

    Yes, you can rent on visitors visas. Make sure you are not getting a fixed term rental agreement though, you need a month by month arrangement incase you need to up sticks quickly for a job offer!!

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    I read just this week that there are two boxes on the contract - one says fixed term and the other is for a periodic lease. Most say they will only do a Fixed term under the guise of it being in your best interests. If they won't do the periodic one, get an agent who will. You can't be kicked out by the landlord as he MUST give you 3 MONTHS notice UNLESS he is selling or he needs it for family and even then it's 42 days. You on the other hand can leave with 3 WEEKS notice. If they try to browbeat you tell them you'll report them to the Tenancy Tribunal. It's an 0800 number but I don't have it I'm afraid.

    I thought this was good info to have under my belt so I'm just passing it on.
