    errrrr... if your on housing benefit it is bloomin obvious that you cant afford to pay your rent yourself.. right?????

    so... i see this advert, for "a 3 bed house £130pw,(average in my area) housing benfit accepted,children and pets welcome, no smokers".... i get £120pw paid by hb..
    they want 1 months rent in advance £520 and the same for a bond................. £1040 to move in.
    all or nearly all are like this but i just think if i cant afford to pay all my rent myself (hence hb) how the hell do i manage to get £1040 to move in..... :rotfl: :rotfl: gotta laugh or ill cry xxx

    we have something called the rent/bond scheme. but you have to have an appointment to make sure your eligable which i know i am but have an appointment for march 12th to go on the list, they pay it for you and you pay them back which is a good idea but when you find somewhere you have to make an appointment and go through a process b4 getting it by which time your chosen house may gave gone and you can only apply once youve found somewhere......and have to do the same everytime xx

    omg talk about working arse over backwards thats a good idea but a daft way to work it, you need to find a really good landlord who is willing to accept you and also who is willing to wait for you!
    really hope you find somewere good luck :hug: :hug:
