It’s essential to set a budget before viewing rental properties so that you only take on a rental you can comfortably afford.
And on applying for a tenancy of one of our properties, (UK) Property Pot will verify that your income is sufficient to cover the monthly rent. We usually require tenants to have an income of at least three times the rent. In certain circumstances we may require this to be higher. If asked to provide a guarantor, they will need to prove their income is at least three and a half times the rent.
