Hi guys, this is my first time renting and I’m quite the rental noob.
I’m a student and moved out from home to go to college and this is being fully (&graciously) funded by my parents.
I will be moving to my first apartment but I’m very confused about my rental application. Would I fill this is myself? Or do my parents do it under their name?
I’ve tried filling it myself but there’s no option to add a guarantor. Is this the equivalent of adding a co-applicant?
When it asks for my bank summary and proof of address is it okay to add my parents? Do I make a note on the application that it would be funded by my parents?
Whilst I don’t mind doing it under my parents name, I would somewhat prefer it under my name so that in the future I have had a rental history
Also, not entirely to do with above, but in terms of negotiating rent per week, what would be standard and recommended? Don’t want to lowball but also want to be paying a fair amount!
Thanks for the help! Much appreciated
