    We have just decided to separate. We currently rent but he says I will never be able to afford to stay here so he is saying I’m the one that should move out with my 5yr old.

    I literally do not know what to do, I know I should go to citizens advice but at the moment I just cant stop crying.

    Hi sorry to hear you have split up.

    I’m still in my private rent house from when we were together.  He made the mistake of not signing the agreement so it was ok.

    What kind of property are you in as you can contact landlord/housing associates for advice or ask at citizens advice.  They can guide you more up to date legally.

    Thank you for your messages. I private rent at the moment so was even thinking of contacting the landlord to ask if I could take it on.

    So much to sort out
