    Sounds more like 1st September? How do you even know if you will be going to that university for definite until you get your results?! Sounds v.odd to me

    Doing this will be like throwing a tantrum because you want to fly.

    Overdrafts are different at different banks, the majority only allow you to use the overdraft facility when your place at uni is confirmed, this is usually results day, unless you have an unconditional offer.

    Best thing would be to call up the landlord and explain the situation. Maybe ask for an extension to the deadline?
    How is it ANYTHING like throwing a tantrum??
    You're going to bank with a genuine need for money, overdrafts are there for things like rent when you're skint not going out 5 nights a week. One would assume that the OP already has an unconditional place because they've entered a contract paying rent for a year or however long and they'd still have to pay it if they didn't get in to uni.

    Going in and demanding money is kinda like throwing a tantrum.

    I didn't consider that the OP has an unconditional place. (I prefer to ignore those that do, damn clever s****)

    @OP: do you have an unconditional? If so, Sparkles suggestion of going to the bank is one route to go. However it's still unlikely they will give you the full £1000. Mention that you have a job, it may get you more money.

    I didn't say he should demand the money off the bank, I said he should bring in the letter that demands the money by 1st august.

    I didn't realise that would make a difference at the bank! But I'm definitely going to go in there with my paperwork confirming my unconditional place as well as the rent request sheet - thank you!! I think that might really help me out even if they only give me a small amount of my overdraft, the £500 would be better than nothing.


    Thanks for your help guys I'll get some rep on the go when I have some.

    My bad about calling you a boy, sorry!

    Hope the bank sorts you out, I don't think it'll be a problem.

    Even if you don't get the full £1000 sorted, tell the landlord how much you have (show him if you can using letters and stuff) he may be more lenient and give you a few more weeks.
    Good luck

    Yeah that's what I'm thinking, at least if I can offer half the money they'll know I'm serious and shouldn't be able to complain too much

    Thanks

    Not really, it's a well known student accommodation company that's been running for years so not really likely to be a rip off landlord. I would have thought the same though!
