    I have received a section 21 on Saturday 30/11 to vacate 03/02/20.

    I have been attempting to get assistance from the council over the last month but as I still technically own my previous home (exchanging on sale any day now)  It’s as if no one wants to help me.

    I’ll be lucky to get £3k from the proceeds of the sale so not enough to help secure anywhere knew.

    It was supposed to completed in September so organised a rental property to move to with my then 9 month old son so we didn’t have much upheaval and everything’s just gone wrong since

    The landlord has said If arrears are cleared we can stay there but it’s a terrible unaffordable flat! the council confirmed I have a shortfall of income of c.£300 so with the added factor of the electric key being super expensive I can’t not have spare cash in case I need to top up.

    I need to move somewhere within my LHA but have no guarantor, no savings, work part time. The council are hesitant as I’m a homeowner (even though I shouldn’t be!)


    what the hell do I do??

    Hi Moskimo,

    It sounds like you need some urgent advice about your housing situation. You can find information on Shelter’s website about how to get advice from a housing adviser:


    I hope that helps.
