    Hi guys,

    it’s the first time I’ve posted on here but feeling pretty desperate at the moment.

    I’m looking for a 2 bed house/flat for me and my daughter and only have a few more weeks to find somewhere, trouble is I’m not receiving ssp which means I also get housing benefit being a single mum. I must of called 10 different agents and enquired about 30 different properties and have been turned down for all of them  either because I don’t work full time or because I’m receiving housing benefits.

    DOES ANYONE KNOW OF ANYONE RENTING OUT A 2 BED PROPERTY IN EITHER DUNSTABLE OR LEIGHTON BUZZARD AREA THAT WILL ACCEPT HA.

    I’ve worked all my life and have studied and worked so hard for my carrier and am now a manager of the company. I suffer with mental health problems so am now off sick and feel totally discriminated against even though I can afford the rent.

    ADVICE/HELP PLEASE!!!

    Thank you to anyone who has managed to read my rant to the end. Lol.

    No. Apparently because I work outside of Bedfordshire I’m not entitled to a council or housing Association property.
