How Much Cash?

Went to see about getting the flat. Apparently the need a £117.50 referencing fee, £300 deposit and £300 rent. And if I want to move in by April then I need to pay it in cash as cheque won't cash in time. Still it's better than Leicester Halls of Residence who don't take cash, debit card or credit card, only cheque.

Did I mention I left my cheque book at home?

Welcome to the Blogsphere, Stuart. I thought it was illegal to charge fees for referencing and that sort of thing, but it's been a while since I rented a flat.

Hope Leicester is treating you well, and that you are treating the student body like the maggots they are. Harsh but fair...

I assume it's illegal in Scotland. It seems to be standard practice down here in Madland.
