    Getting 0% credit card to pay Stamp duty

    Getting 0% credit card to pay Stamp duty 5th Jun 13 at 5:25 PM
    Hi guys, I am buying a house with my girlfriend and we have enough for a 15% deposit (just), we have been accepted on a mortgage (Accord). I just need to pay the stamp duty of 1360 and i don't have the extra cash. Is a 0% purchases credit card the best route. i have already exhausted all 'family loans' for help with the deposit. I currently have a credit card with approx 900 on it. Are my chances of acceptance any good? and would it be best to apply for the credit card AFTER completion on the house move as to not hurt my credit rating and the mortgage companies final check.

    Thanks in advance for any guidance and wisdom!
