    I applied for my student loans a few months ago for my final year, when I was planning to move back to my parents' house. I think the maintenance loan they've approved for me is around £2000. However, I've realised that I really don't want to move back home and am desperately trying to find somewhere I can rent for less than £350 a month (In London, not an easy task!), but obviously the current loan won't stretch to that.
    I'm just wondering if the SLC will increase my loan to the max allowed (£4500 I think?) if I inform them of my change in circumstances, and if so, because it's happening so late, will it be delayed in getting to me? Obviously I would call them but it's Sunday so thought I'd see if anyone's got any experience first!
