Really stressing out and needing advice please help?

I am looking to rent a property and going to view this week however, I currently live with my grandparents and have done for the past 4/5 years or so. I have never officially changed addresses from my parents house, so all post still goes there, however I have just found out that when I moved out my dad took me off the electoral roll for living at their house, and I am no longer registered on the electoral roll. How much of an impact will this have on renting potential, and being successful?

Also with my employer, i did advise them of my current address with my grandparents, so my wage slips come to my grandparents house, what address would I put as my current address when filling in application as bank etc.... all at my parents, but my employer have me registered with my grandparents house,

Apologies if this is confusing, really stressing me out.

Thanks in advance 😊

You can check your own records via something like Credit Karma... nothing to pay and it should highlight the kinds of things that a prospective Landlord or Agent might also see. The best approach, though, is just to be totally transparent with any people you talk and have explanations that make sense for anything you consider to be something of an oddity... with the current climate, Landlords aren't likely to turn away genuine Tenants.

Plus, remember - you're the customer in this equation... you're the one who should be choosing, as such. Don't let it worry you until you hit a snag... answer any questions at a viewing (socially distanced, of course) as best you can. Only then will you know if there's to be any kind of problem. As for correct address - it's where you live. It can't be anything else, really.
