As Viki has already mentioned, rent should not be a problem as long as it is not extortionately high for the area. When I declared bankruptcy I was paying just under £300 per month, but lived on a council estate in a not very nice area. After the one year bankruptcy finished I was still in an IPA for another 2 years but I had to move as I couldn't stay in my current flat any longer, so I explained this to Moonbeever and the RTLU and they accepted my request to pay a higer rent (which increased to £400 per month) without any problem. There may have been an issue if I had increased the rent to a much higher amount of say £1000, but if it is a reasonable amount then I shouldn't imagine it being a problem. Of course you would need to supply Moonbeever with proof of rent by sending them a copy of the lease agreement.
