I'll be spending the first three months of 2017 in the UK (near London), possibly longer.
What documents exactly would a potential landlord want to see? Could a landlord demand a higher deposit since I am new in the UK (and less predictable)? Or maybe a bank guarantee? Would an agency or private landlord be more flexible? Would it be easier to find something if I it has a time limit. This way, they know they get rid of the tenant, if it happens that he doesn't pay. Or do they prefer long term tenants? The French company I work for has no offices in the UK.
