I have privately rented my house for 5 years now and landlord my originally told me I could stay here until December 2015 as she wasn’t selling house until then. However, she unexpectedly gave me notice to leave on 1st July with 2 months notice!
I have always paid my rent on time and I’m not in any arrears but I’m not in a very good financial position now as have recently separated from my husband and have our 5th baby due in less than 3 months. This is the worst timing ever for me!
I’ve been to the council to ask for help and I’ve been put on the housing register and advised by them to stay in the property even though my notice to leave has run out now. The Council have advised me to wait to hear from the courts to properly evict me but I’m so worried how long I have before me and my children are homeless and also bearing in mind I’m heavily pregnant the stress is really getting to me!
The landlord mentioned she had gone to the court today to get the papers to start the procedure to evict me and I’m wondering how long from now do you think I have before I actually have to leave?
The council said I will be given higher priority once I receive a court letter so I feel like it’s all just a waiting game. However, the council aren’t promising anything as they don’t have 4 bedroom houses easily available 🙁
I just need to have a realistic time in my mind as I really don’t have a clue about any of this!
