I have recently agreed to let a property in London and I have been asked to just give a credit check, but they have also sent me a link to landlord nationwide to fill out details. My issue is that I am asked to give my address to check my credit, however I am not on the tenancy in the house I am living in as I moved in with my boyfriend and did not add me to the tenancy, and I do not have proof of address as I dont have mail sent here. I have lived here for a year, I had previously lived with a family member, and this is where all my bank statements were sent, should I put down my previous address/ say I still live there?

Katherine- I recommend you discuss this directly with the letting agent. This is not an unusual situation.
