    How long before taking out a credit card? 11th Mar 18 at 9:44 PM
    Hello, we are hoping to complete this Wednesday coming. At the moment, my partner and I have a credit card each, his credit card has a limit of 3000 of which he owes 240, my credit card has a limit of 1200 and I owe 300. Both cards are not 0 interest anymore but we have been waiting to get the mortgage before taking out any type of credit.

    When would you think it will be a good time to get a new credit card after getting the mortgage (the keys on Wednesday)?
