Renting on a bridging visa?

Has anyone succesfully secured a lease / rental house on a bridging visa? My partner and I have been living with his parents and fairly desperately want to move out - really need our own space.

Problem is my partner is unemployed on Centrelink payments, I am making more than enough to rent, on a casual contract on a bridging visa (A).

Does anyone know if my visa will get in the way of me renting? I doubt my partner's unemployment will be enough to impress a real estater so it'd have to be in my name.

Have you thought about subletting a room until your visa is approved?

Last year my partner and I signed a 10 month lease which expired after my WHV expired (And I didn't know I was doing the 820 then), and they didn't even check my visa status.

Nah, room's not an option with three cats we'd want them with us, not leave them with my parents-in-law, we'd never get them back! LOL

So they didn't even ask? We'd be able to ask my mother-in-law to support our application since she has a permanent contract. Don't even know if that works, though. In the Netherlands you just... rent. They don't ask you what you make how or on what visa (as far as I know), they just kick you out and sue you if you don't pay

No, they didn't even ask, just wanted to know how much we earned and called our employers!
