Wages & income

To qualify for Link2Let, the monthly rent for the property must not exceed 45% of your monthly income after tax and credit commitments are deducted. A maximum income threshold has been set for each local authority area. Applications are not normally accepted for people who earn in excess of this. Please see the property advert for details of the threshold which applies for the property you are applying for. 

We need to verify your total household income. This includes your partner (if you have one) or any other adult earners within the household. For this we need copies of your last 3 monthly payslips, or last 13 if you are weekly paid. If you are self employed please provide a copy of your last year's accounts or most recent SA302 tax form.

If you receive any benefit payments (including Universal Credit, Working Tax Credit and Personal Independence Payment) please provide a copy of your current award notice.

Each applicant must provide copies of their previous 3 months complete bank statements showing both income and rent/mortgage payments where applicable. We will use these bank statements to look for evidence that you are able to effectively manage your money. Your application may be affected if there is evidence of (though not limited to): returned or missed payments; unauthorised overdraft usage; debt management programmes, or; use of short term 'pay-day' or high interest lending.
