Hi – I’m going through a separation and am starting to look for a rented house for me and my two year old daughter. Could you give me some tips on anything I should look out for (for example, your experiences with landlords and allowing children, any questions to ask to make sure it will be a safe home and what happens if she draws on the walls or something). I’ve always rented before I had my daughter, but it’s always been temporary places and I’d really like to find something stable and longer term for us both. We’re currently living in my boyfriend’s house (which he owns) and I have lived there since before I got pregnant, so the move feels pretty overwhelming for me, both emotionally and financially.
Am really scared so any tips on how to make this as easy a transition as possible and to find a place that’s good for me and my daughter would be really welcome.
It sounds like your going through some stressful times. Is your ex not prepared to help you? Surely he wants to know that his daughter and mother to his daughter are housed safely and properly?
I’m a landlord. I, aswell as most landlords are normal human beings with emotions, I’m sure alot will be happy to help you and go that extra mile to make sure your comfortable, considering your circumstances
What area of country are you in? I’m in West Yorkshire. If your close I could help.
