  • I am 17 and soon to be 18 and I am going to be coming into a great deal of money from my trust fund. Following leaflet may be of interest.

  • It's unlikely that you will be able to rent accommodation if you are under 18 years old unless you can get a 'guarantor' to also sign for you.

  • It is unlikely that most landlords will accept and under 16, 18 is the general requirement for a formal tenancy agreement. As Arthur rightly says seek a guarantor to give you the best chance.

  • No, unless you pay the rent yourself, council won't help with rent at 16 but some private landlords do if you have guarantor with own house.

  • Hi, Yes this would be fine as long as you have a guarantor.

  • Yes you may. You just have to have an adult sign showing that you are eligible.
