  • Eligibility

    You are eligible if:

    • Your total household income is no more than £90,000.
    • Your monthly salary will be at least 2.75x the rent, as each flat has a minimum income required.
    • You must be able to provide one month's rent in advance and one month's rent as a security deposit.
    • The Big Blue must be your primary residence, so you will be an existing or first time tenant and not own property in the UK or overseas. 
    • You currently live or work in London.
    • You must be employed on a permanent contract or a temporary contract with six months remaining, the original contract being issued for at least 12 months.
    • You have no history of rent arrears from a previous property within the last 12 months or have not breached the terms of a tenancy agreement. 
    • You must meet the current “Right to Rent” legislation requirements.
    • You have the right to rent if you are:
      • British
      • a citizen of a country in the EU or EEA
      • a citizen of another country with no time limits on your permission to live in the UK (such as indefinite leave to remain).

      You can have a time-limited right to rent if there's a time limit on your permission to stay in the UK. This is likely if you have a visa:

      • for work
      • to study
      • as a husband, wife or civil partner of someone settled in the UK

      The time-limited right to rent also applies if you have humanitarian protection, limited leave or discretionary leave to remain.
