If you are looking to rent it may be better to use a private landlord and not an agency. Private landlords are unlikely to have access to your credit file and may be happy with a reference from your current landlord.

You should also speak to your IP because if you cannot work due to illness it may be worth asking creditors to accept payments to date as full and final settlement rather than the IVA having to fail.
