Hi, Myself and my partner are looking to rent a property,

Resolved Question:


Myself and my partner are looking to rent a property, however my partner has recently been convicted of Fraud by Abuse of Position and was given a suspended sentence for two years from the Crown Court.

Can you advise as to how that may effect renting anywhere or if it will?
