    You don't have too but if that is what they ask for the application and you don't give it your application may be seen as invalid , have you given them
    Pay slips and receipts of any bill payments?

    I am not to sure, I can't quite remember but we just gave them a couple of DPs pay slips to show that we were getting paid & that we could afford rent. I know when we applied for a mortgage we had to give them bank statements but mortgage is alot bigger then renting. Are you going thru a REal Estates or Private?

    If there is a reason you really don't want to then talk to them about an option, otherwise i would just give it to them.

    I personally wouldn't feel comfortable giving them bank details! We didn't even give pay slips!! Lol

    You can cross off your account details when you give them the statement, we ask for statements purely to check that your wages/centre link payments are what you have told us and are regular

    I've given them for proof of address, just blanked out the contents leaving the bank letterhead and my address.

    For proof of paying rent you can do the same thing, just blank everything except the rent out. They may want to sight the original for authenticity, but no... you don't need to give them a total breakdown of your spending.

    I've also given one to show adequate savings when we had no income (just landed in the country), but again, blanked everything aside from relevant details.

    I agree, I gave my statement with acc details blacked out and I highlighted we weekly income on all the pages!

    If you have payslips, they'll do the same thing.
