    We have been an expat family for the last 12 years. I am separating from my husband and returning to the uk with my children.
    I can stay with my mum for a short time, but will need to rent a place ASAP. I will be looking for work once my kids are settled in school.
    is it possible to rent without a guaranteed job in place? I will get a regular allowance from my husband and I could probably pay 6 months rent in advance.

    Hello HWUK,

    I separated from my husband this year whilst unemployed. Although different rent agencies/landlords  have different policies, I just wanted to let you know that I was able to get a place to rent by paying 6 months rent in advance (for a 12 month rental contract).

    Good luck for your resettling process.
