so basically i am finishing my 3rd year of uni and graduating soon i cannot move back home due to overcrowding as my family has had two new babies since i moved out. i currently have 3 part time jobs and in interviews for a full time job and dont live close to my parents. i have put money away to be able to pay a deposit plus a few months rent but i am struggling to find a flat as i have failed the referencing recently for a place because i dont currently havea full time job. i was wondering what i should look into moving forward as i am only allowed to stay in my current shared house till the end of june.

Some letting agents may still allow you to have a guarantor so your parents could guarantee the rent. When I graduated I had the choice between that or using my earnings.

What evidence have you given that’s been turned down? Do they know you have savings? Have you got contracts for each job stipulating your earnings/hours?

Unfortunately it’s likely just a matter of shopping around until someone accepts you :/
Was it definitely the lack of full time work that was the issue? There’s nothing else the referencing check could have found?

try a private house share they might be happier to accept you, or could you offer some rent upfront

yes i recon offering a private landlord six months upfront and then building trust up with them and then you'll get a good landlord reference out of them if you decide to move

Do you have a contract for the new job? I know it’d be a bit last minute with you only having a month between starting and your tenancy running out, but that might be enough? I used a contract for a new job I was starting to get my current place.

Sorry I can’t be more helpful :/
