I am in need of some urgent help, I live with my partner and his parents at present, his parents feel they want to ‘down size’ due to expenses and they rent the house we live in. They have offered us to move with them or to find a property for ourselves! I’m really worried as we or they will go though an estate agents but what will happen in regards to the credit checks? They said I would need to be on the tencacy as I will be living in the property and I’ve really no other choice!
You need to check with a letting agent, but all adults living in a property do not need to be on the tenancy agreement. The agent will require them to sign a disclaimer, relinquishing any rights to remain in the property that they might otherwise acquire by reason of residence.
If you do have to suffer a crdit check, make sure that the file is as clean as it can and that the IVA is at least marked as completed. Unfortunately the IVA and the defaults will all still be there and, if you were applying on your own, you would normally fail a check. However, the parents good standing might well overcome that. Do they know about the IVA ?
