So, my situation is:
Currently living in a room I rent in a shared flat
My lease and my partner's lease end in June
We will both move in with my parents until 5th August when our new lease will start
SAAS have just told me that as I miss the 1st August 'cut off' to be living with my partner, I will be classed as a dependent student next year, rather than an independent one, which I would be if we moved in before the 1st August.
This reduced my finance from the maximum available to the minimum - has anyone had any experience of getting around this? Currently it looks like our only option will be to rent a room in a flat for the four days between the 1st and the 5th so that we are technically living together.
...or just paranoid?
