My name is Balbine and I’m looking for a flat/house to live in with my daughter. I’ve been searching for a home for a year. now, and every time I’ve found nothing. I’ve even emailed estate agencies to see if they would take housing benefits and only 2 out of the 13 agencies that I emailed, emailed me back to say no, they don’t take housing benefit tenants.
I have a daughter, who is 15. She’s at the stage in her life where she needs to have her own space, she needs to be able to prepare for her GCSE’S and it hasn’t been easy for her. I’ve lived in Brockley my whole life and I work in Brockley, so it would honestly be the ideal place for me to live. I do have alternate areas such as: Nunhead, New Cross, Honor Oak, Forest Hill, Crofton and Peckham.
The council is trying to be of use, but its always a “no we can’t, because.” I’ve done a lot too. I haven’t just been siting down waiting for a phone call or hoping. I’ve put in an ad on Gumtree, I’ve asked friends and family, I’ve joined the Housing Waiting List etc. I just need to find a property for the sake of my child, for her. She’s everything to me and she has been my rock during this time in our life. Her words of encouragement is what has kept me going.
I am employed. I have 2 jobs. And so I am reliable when it comes to payment. I’d be able to provide a guarantor. I’m clean, I don’t smoke, I don’t own any pets. I just want a place to call home for me and child.
So, if there is a slight chance that there is someone out there who can help me, please contact me.
