Finding an affordable, suitable place to live can be a challenge for single parents. And struggling with housing can be very stressful for parents and their children. So we’ve gathered together advice on some common issues: your housing rights when you separate, options for renting, how to get financial support with a mortgage, and what to do if you have nowhere to live. 

Our advice team is here to give you personalised advice if you need to talk to us.
