    0% CC - when to apply 9th Oct 17 at 11:16 PM
    Hi folks, quick question!

    I've just bought my first house and I'm looking to get a decent 0% card to get some of the big stuff out the way (carpets, sofa etc).
    I obviously want to wait until i have the keys in my hand but when i apply i won't have moved in to my new address yet or changed any of my details for electoral roll/bank accounts etc.....should i still say that i am living with my parents, or should i say I'm a homeowner even though they won't have any evidence of this yet??

    Hope that makes sense, any help would be greatly appreciated.

    They'll probably ask for "residential" address, ie where you sleep and eat and keep your clothes!

    The fact you own a property (that you don't yet reside at) doesn't matter.

    If you want to apply now then use your current address and residential status. I assume you are on the electoral roll at your current address.
