View Full Version : Renting a house when self employed?

14-06-2007, 08:04 PM
Hey guys,

havent posted on here for ages but have a bit of a dilema that I'm sure some of you have faced...

I'm just about to graduate and was going to go from here to expand my until now part-time web design work and go ful-time with it. Problem is though, I'm trying to find a house to rent and all the agencies demand that I am in full employment.

Has anyone had experience with this? Would I be able to convince them I can pay the rent with my own employment or will they need to see payslips?

The only other way I thought of doing it was to incorporate my web design company and then pay myself as an employee... not sure if this is bordering on fraud though!!!

any help would be hugely appreciated!!!
