If you are only using your income on the credit app, then I probably would not list that I pay rent, because you don't if your husband pays it. I am not sure what you would put were it asks if you rent or own, I guess check other if there is an other box and say that you live with someone else rent free.

the income would only be my own. we split bills and he has poor credit that is hindering us getting a loan in a joint credit application.
