My first ever working tenant!Make Text Bigger
I have a flat to rent and had an enquiry from a single lady (with son aged 13) who will be working, but whose rent will be topped up by the DWP. All of my tenants to date in the area have never worked at all, so I have a few questions I hope my fellow experienced Landlords can answer!
1. Do I need a guarantor? As she will still already be claiming some money for rent from DWP, if her hours are then reduced/job lost I presume she will just apply a change of circumstance and get the rest of the rent paid (she has no savings)
2. If I need a guarantor, how do I go about this? Not sure she has family in the country. Could I approach her employer? Anyone had cause to do this?
Anything else I need to consider?
