    I'd say it's your age, it can be tough to break into the rental market. Where i live it is super, super competitive and as said they will almost always choose and older couple with paying jobs (totally no offence to you guys). A lot of real estate agencies still think that 18 year olds will have parties and stuff.

    Could you get your partners parents to apply for the house for you? I know that it wouldn't get you a rental record if you aren't on the lease, but perhaps you could do that and once you get a place and move in, they could try adding you to the lease? Def do a cover letter, and make sure you have everything you need (references if needed, payslips, bank statements all of that) and hand in a filled out application when you view the property. Sometimes they will just go with the first application that checks out.

    Good luck! hope you get your house.

    Being totally honest here. If I were reviewing your application I'd see it as you guys not assuming responsibility and I wouldn't want people who weren't prepared to do that living in my rental, for reasons beyond making rent. Not saying that's you at all, just how I'd view it if I were considering you as tenants without knowing you.

    I think your best bet is to have your ILs apply for it, get it with you all on the lease and prove yourselves as tenants.

    As an agent I would only approve you if your in laws were on the lease as well ( as they are paying the rent ) also there is no way we would allow a home business unless it was council approved and relevant insurances were in place and the landlord consented ( very hard to do on an application!)
