They've already told me they won't help me out with a reference anyway. So all i've got to show for myself is a tenant ledger showing rent has always been paid 2 weeks in advance.you never want to ever let it get that far as you will never be given a good reference and you will be registered on the tenant database , it sucks but just try and keep looking and work with the agent, its in their best interest to help you
The whole thing sucks!. Acquiring a rental should not be this difficult!

I appreciate that the rental situation is tough but you will not help your long term future by staying - and you will only be delaying the inevitable for a few weeks at best.
07-09-2012 14:05 #14They probably don't do a written reference but you can surely put them down as a contact on future applications so that prospective owners/agents can phone them. I'd double check that as many places just don't do written references anymore.good luck!

It happened to me, we applied for an extension as time ran out and had still not found a place. We were granted a few extra weeks and thankfully found somewhere a few weeks later but we outstayed by about 4 days. They took it to tribunal but luckily withdrew after we had vacated a the 4 days later.
Unfortunatly we didn't find anywhere in a private rental though but community housing came in and found us priority emergency housing. It was highly stressful and I feel for you as this happened at the start of the year so not long ago and is still fresh in my mind.
I hope you find somewhere quickly. Can you ask community housing in your area? We were on a list for a while anyway so that helped, but if you are desperate they might step in and help, they seemed quite good right up at the end when we were desperate.

When you get kicked out of a rental..
We still give written references? Have you defaulted or done anything during the tenancy that would warrant them writing a bad reference? Have they got other rentals they could transfer you to?

What I would do is see if the real estate will tell the new owners of your circumstances, or get them to call you to see if you can get an extension. If they are flexible, they may work with you and give you some extra time?
You don't know the new owner's circumstances either, they could be moving from a rental or have already organised their move and if you just stay on, you could be putting someone else in the same situation that you are in.

That sounds incredibly stressful. I hope you find something soon.
