All you have to do is have a Judge grant you emancipation from your parents, and you are ready to roll whenever you want!

Sweet sixteen

Its 16 years old and you dont need parental consent.Its sensible really because you can marry at 16years and as in my case join the forces at 17years.


i think its 16 James but why not wait for another two years or so you will be able to handle it a bit more easily

16. You'll find it hard to get a place to stay without a job and your parents will have to be your guarantors if you rent a place, meaning they are the ones that will have to stump up the money if you can't pay the rent.

18 in the US, I don't know about the UK

Leave home to live independently.? Scottish law allows young people to leave home legally at sixteen years of age. In England and Wales sixteen year olds can leave home only with parental consent.

you have to be 18 to rent a flat but you can leave home with parents permission at 16.

Depends on the State. Texas is 17 but you cannot rent anything until you are 18 so.......

funky munky is back
18, my 18 year old son don't think so though.

I think in England & Wales it is 16. Not shure about the rest of the UK.

Think it's 16 with parents permission, 18 without.

I think that it is 16

I think its 18

I'm quite worried you are leaving home to stay in a flat and certainly being a teenager it can be tough. I am sure you have your reasons, contact your local Citizen Advice Bereau, goodluck.

Don't know about the UK, but most states allow teens to leave at either 16 or 18. Check what your local laws are.

16 you can leave with parents consent and if you leave without and the police are called out they cant make you go back home unless you are unsafe. where as if u leave at 17 you are old enough to leave without consent but you still cant rent/buy until age 18 ;)
