    Bank statements 12th Apr 18 at 2:19 PM

    My girlfriend and I have been renting an apartment for 1.5 years and have had a flat-mate for 1 year.

    We have just had an offer accepted for a property and need to send over information to the soliciters. One piece of this information is 3 months worth of bank statements.

    I pay for the apartment through my bank account and my girlfriend and flat-mate pay me their share, into my bank account.

    Do I need to attain evidence from my letting agent that our flat-mate has been living with us so that the inward monthly payments from them, into my bank account don't look suspicious or like laundering?

    Obviously they would have had sufficient evidence from my girlfriend as she has to send over bank statements too.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback!

    Kind regards,

    I wouldn't have thought so, but the definitive answer is easily obtained by making a phone call to your solicitor.
