Hi.

I'm a 31year old disabled woman who is currently unable to work. I'm a non smoker, non drinker, non drug user and I have a working professional guarantor who has over 12 months rent in the bank. We could pay 6 months rent upfront. Is there ANYONE on here who is willing to rent a property to me (not a house share)?

I'm in a mentally abusive situation and am desperate to escape but cannot find anywhere. Estate agents completely ignore me despite my financial situation being more stable than most (with the help of my guarantor).

Property needs to be quiet and either wheelchair accessible OR somewhere with a safe parking space outside to store wheelchair (outdoor user only - I can climb a flight of stairs).

Even just a short term rental (6 months) would absolutely change my life.

Thanks

I am not in your area, so can't offer you a place.Just a comment though.Most landlords are looking for long-term tenants.Re-letting is expensive and time-consuming.Also,it's well known that a guarantor agreement is not worth the paper it is written on.I never take anyone who cannot demonstrate that they have the means to pay their rent without assistance.Once the six months is up,do you have the income to do this? If not,you will find it very difficult. Have you approached charities or organisations for domestic abuse victims to see if there is any accomodation that can offer you some respite? In my area there are church-regulated alms houses for vulnerable women.It may be harder than usual though,given the increase in such cases during lockdown.
Maybe others will have some other suggestions.Good luck.
