Renting as a new freelancer...

    Hi all, hoping for some advice if any can help.

    My landlady has suddenly announced she is selling the house I live in (totally unexpected and infuriating!), and I'm getting backlash from letting agencies over only having been freelance for a year (even from the agency I'm currently with, who have a record that I've paid the rent on time and kept the house well etc.). Am terrified I won't find somewhere in time and could end up in some sort of bonkers squatting situation (or, worse, having to give up my cats - disaster!).
    Does anyone have any experience of this sort of issue? Any advice would be so gratefully received.
    Thank you thank you in advance,

    Could you say a little more Emma; what, precisely, is the problem or issue?

    Lupita, thanks for your reply. My query was regarding trying to find any kind of credibility as a new freelancer as no one wants to trust me. I am not going to need immediate help as am going to move into a private agreement which will not require an official contract, although any advice would be gratefully received.
    Thanks again,

    I appreciate your response, Lupita. My inquiry pertained to my struggle to establish myself as a credible new freelancer in the face of widespread skepticism. Any suggestions would be appreciated, but I won't need anything right now because I'm entering into a private arrangement that doesn't call for a formal contract.
