I have managed to save up £2000 which I was planning to put towards deposits etc.
My husband & I are seperating & is now leaving this property in a couple of weeks so that will all go on rent & bills whilst myself & the children are still living here so will be back to square one again.
My local council has advised that we need correct notice from the landlord (landlord is mother in law) but section 21 doesn’t match criteria - we never paid a deposit so isn’t held in a deposit safety scheme or whatever it’s called!
They would prefer me to wait it out, no way would I put my landlord or any landlord through that stress of court cases.
Does anyone know if she could use a section 8? She has no grounds of anything bad, basics are the house is now sold, exchange/completion looking around 8 weeks time & we need to leave.
I have called & applied for so many properties but on paper I am a soon to be single mum with 2 kids & pets, work 2 part time jobs which work around my children & topped up with UC so I don’t get a look in. I’m trying to not take it personally but so many brick walls every day are starting to wear me down. I can heartbreakingly re-home the pets but can’t do anything about UC at the moment.
I did speak to a private landlord on Monday, he said he needs to speak to his wife & I haven’t heard back as yet. Do you think that is a non-starter?
Sorry for the questions, I know I will get the truth on here.
