    Hi all

    My girlfriend is due to start her second year of university. We have been discussing letting me move in to her student house thingy with her 2 guy mates (all the more reason to move in) as she wants me too. Ive agreed that i would contribute to bills, rent food ect but i wouldn't be there 24/7 until her 3rd year where we plan to move in together properly (fingers crossed). Bit of background on me:
    I have apprenticeship and study up at Chester in 3 week blocks so i do have a stable income. Sometimes i have to train away from home for a week or 2 fairly regularly.

    Now ive read numerous things on this and wondered whether it was actually possible. ive read all sorts on breaking tenancy agreements and all this other stuff and council tax and was just wondering if this was possible or would i just have to do it on the sly. A easy excuse for the money ide give would simply be "im paying her back some money she lent me". Can someone please clarify

    EDIT: This is a privately rented house

    Basically you would be breaking the tenancy agreement and the law if you avoided paying council tax.

    You d need proof of all the other tenants being students and then of your income send it to the council and you should get it discounted a bit.
