Feeling tearful

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I really dont know whats wrong with me today as I feel so low!

I have got a lot going on, like having to find somewhere to live by end of april as landlord selling and he wants us out as it going to Auction. We have done so much to this property and spent so much money on it as it was so disgusting when we moved in! Trouble is finding somewhere, over here in uk it is really hard to find properties and house prices through the roof so people are all going for the rental properties, as I am. I cannot afford to get a mortgage here at the mo as it is sky high.

I just keep feeling sorry for myself and have got the love channel music station on, lol, makes me feel happier, dont know why as I keep crying!!

Anyway, just makes me a little happier typing this out.

Sorry for the sob

Awww try and not stress I don't know whereabouts in the UK you are but have you had a look at the housing associations in your area?. Over here people don't need to rely on the council for housing now. We have Cheviot housing, North British housing, so you should have similar.

Good advice but unfortunately HA's like those often have a waiting list over six months
Where are you looking for somewhere to rent claire1973? If you looking around London then it shouldn't be so hard but the rents are very high
Good luck- keeping my fingers crossed for you

Im with you! I live in a dump and my lease is up May 1st and I still have no idea where I am going to live (been looking everyday for about 6 months)! Where I live all cats must be declawed to live in any apartment complex and usually the deposit is $200 per cat and $30 extra a month per cat! Where I live now I snuck my cats in because they have claws! I think its bs the demands on declawing! My cats never claw on furniture, just their posts! Im suppose to mutulate them and subject them to cruelty because landlords are clueless about the species in general! Plus Im broke, my job sucks, my health sucks, pretty much everything does! The only thing that makes me happy are my kitties! Everything here is so overpriced (the rentals are dumps and priced too high)! Not to mention I don't have anyone to help move! So I give you hugs! Hang in there! You will get through this and best of luck to you and your relocation!

I've been calling places all day! Duplexes and apartments... I told them I have cats and some are willing to except them even with claws! Maybe things will look up for me! I wish declawing wasn't so necessary to find an apartment! Not all cats scratch furniture, etc! Mine dont!

So glad that landlords dont stipulate that over here!!

A lot of landlords wont allow pets or kids!! so really difficult for me as I have both!

I just hope this place is ok as Im running out of options FAST

Hope your situation looks up for ya

What? How can a landlord reject kids? Pets I understand but kids? Thats just crazy!
post #17 of 20

I know, its crazy aint it!

Think they think kids go round destoying everything, well maybe some do but mine dont and Im sure that the landlords cannot just house couples!!

Obviously if we want to private rent we should not have pets,kids, and no life!!!!!!!!!
post #18 of 20
Ok I think saying Kids arent allowed is serious discrimination! So no one is allowed to reproduce because kids are just disasterous mongrouls? These people obviously don't have kids! Theyre not wild animals, geeze they're human beings!

Hi Claire,
Can't the council help? I know the waiting lists can be huge, but is it worth a try? That and the housing association.

Good luck in finding another place. We're all here for you to help you along the way.

Well the council were no help whatesoever!! They just said I had to try and find rented myself!!! Waiting list is huge, either that or I go into B&B which I cannot do, not fair wiv kids and they are all disgusting.

On housing association list but long wait so no choice but to privately rent even if the rents are high!

Thanx for everyones support, it really helps

Claire
