Short Term Financing


So I have a question if I may please. In the next month or so I need to source £2500 for a rental deposit. Following which (subsequent month or two) I will receive back a similar amount from my previous rental deposit. What ideas do people have about short term financing to pick up the gap in financing please? Initially I was thinking of a balance transfer credit card (now not the case), but if anyone else has any ideas about low cost/no cost solutions to combat this dilemma it would be much appreciated.

Kind Regards,

    0% purchases card? But only if the agent/landlord accepts cards and if the fees are not too high.

    Alternatively, a. money transfer offer, with the same provisos.

    Hi thank you for your reply. I received the below from the estate agent I will pay my rent deposit too:

    With regards to payment for deposits, unfortunately we do not accept card payments. Payment would have to be done either via bank transfer or cheque.

    So the question remains tough :). Any more answers would be great.

    What was wrong with the money transfer option suggested? Perhaps you don't know what one of those is?...

    Other than that...
