Our plan, before the new bump, was to take over another bedroom in our 3 bedroom shared house, so we had 2 bedrooms and 1 lodger. Now that i am pregnant it looks like we wont be able to afford that and frankly, why would we, its 650 just for the rent and then bills on top AND we would have to share our house with someone else. The landlord has since given us our marching orders, we currently live, the three of us, in a double room in a shared house and we have a notice to evict. We earn less than minimum wage because Liam is on an apprenticeship scheme and he gets a lift to work from our home town every day... I am hoping they see us as high priority... we are cramped to say the least and need to find affordable housing before September at the latest... has anyone got any experience of council housing banding schemes? Thats what they do round here which is, i suppose, a-lot more reasonable than moving people into homes they really dont want to be in! So you get a banding and then you bid for houses we could do with a 2 bedroomed house but ALL the two bedroomed properties seem to be ear-marked for the elderly and disabled!! Which is so annoying!
