    I'm currently filling in the form for my house for next year but it's a bit confusing and I think it'll be easier to do when we're all together (my housemates are all away travelling and stuff and it's been difficult to track down their details).

    Does it matter when you get this filled in, will it be OK to leave it til September?

    Fill it in as soon as you move into the new house, according to the date stated on your contract.

    Our contract started at the beginning of July but none of us are moving in until September. Will it be OK to do it then?

    Some universities contact the council directly with a list of students so they can verify - others you may need to have a letter or such written.

    I also never realised it entitled you to free water as well until recently!

    When we filled in the paperwork and got it back from the council it said that too, since water is billed alongside council tax presumably it applies to both.

    That's only in Scotland - in England and Wales, water bills come from the local water company and students aren't exempt from paying them.
