Hey Guys and Gals,

I am viewing a flat today, would be my first flat alone if I like it and go ahead filing the paperwork to rent the place.

I have seen the application procedure already and I have a few worries.

I need to provide a utility bill, and the only one in my case is a credit card bill on which I still owe some money. Would this go down bad in my application?

I could pay this off right now but it wouldn't show up until my next statement.

Thanks dudes.

Sorry I have not explained correctly. I need two forms of ID in the application process to rent the flat. I have to provide documentation with my application form. Of is proof of ID and one proof of current address (e.g Utility Bill)

Oh... I guess you mean something that someone mailed to your current address that has your name on it.

Nah, they shouldn't care if you owe money on a credit card. Just don't use a bad credit card to pay your rent and you should be fine. You could always use a bank statement if you still don't feel good about it, that's what I usually use.

No, it'll be fine. Nobody pays off their credit card bill every month anyway. Do they? When I was a student I had one. I found it endlessly amusing to pay off all of the bill except a random number of pence. Used to really fuck with their heads and lead to confused phone calls. It was hilarious. I was, of course, stoned as a motherfucker most of the time though.

Utilities are gas, water, electric etc. Stuff that everyone uses.

Regardless, they want some proof of your ID, that's all.

My advice, anyway, would be to get a private landlord, estate agents are no end of trouble.
