    Hello,

    I was just wondering if anyone knew that if I have been paying board/rent in my own home for the last 3 years, will this count to be being independent? Otherwise it is going to look like I will have very little for the loan starting Sep 16.

    Thank you in advance.

    No, you have to have earned over a certain amount to qualify

    The quoted figure for earnings to be classed as independent is £7500 a year for 3 years
